Even though it`s almost a fatality, I thought that it belongs to instructors forum...

I dont care where it ends up. Thanks for putting it here. I would not have seen it otherwise.\
I'll reserve my comments other than to say I'm not impressed at the lack of professionalism

Re: [propacker] Bad Tandem [In reply to] Can't Post

Clearly, as the student is struggling in the door, the harness is not adjusted correctly. Wow. I'm with Propacker on this one... my heart is still pounding.

Also, I think this supports my theory that, "skydiving is an extream sport and is not for everyone"!!!! Glad everyone survived.

As a tandem videographer, what do you do here? Unsure

Nothing. That includes finishing a version of the vid with music. Really? Polishing a turd?

agreed! And I'm surprised this made it's way out. 'how can i set myself up for a lawsuit' comes to mind.....wow! There should have been 2 fired staff members there.

Per the thread in Instructors the TM's rating was pulled a year ago; this incident happened over a year ago.

These guys work for Bill Dause. Chances are he's fired them both numerous times already. Just sayin... ;)

To me it looks like he was "helping" peel the ladies hands off the door...obviously it's not the video guys job to critique a harness job, but I would if it was THAT bad...and I'd leave my hands off the student.

Not to defend this idiot in ANY form or fashion....but.

I have had more than a few grab anything and everything when we get in the door.
They're out of their element, off balance, in a harness that limits movement, and another human moving them around the whole time as well.
It's quite unsettling for even the bravest of students.
Usually a good "Hands on your harness!" will correct the hand positions...but not always.
I have exited with a few that wouldn't stop grabbing stuff, yet you know they want to jump.
"Hands off the door and we'll be fine" has worked for those.

I still say I'm not sure if she didn't WANT to exit or simply COULDN'T.
She looks to have been stuck in the squat. TI is fully over her preventing it as well.
Gotta love cramped aircraft sometimes.

But, again, he was clearly at fault for not fitting the harness correctly. He's very lucky she didn't come out of the harness.

From what I remember of that day(happened long time ago) she got banged up pretty good on landing but no major injuries. Family brought her to hospital but we never heard anything further.

I was just about to (after watching it once 1st) - and just moments ago, when re-clicking the link, find it has been re-set as "PRIVATE".

MMMMM....lets see...

Older lady needs very special care and attention...
Obviously poorly fitted harness ...
She baulks at door and makes situation worse...
The sensible move now is to go back to a seat....
Instructor persists and follows with intentional unstable exit...
READ THAT,,,intentional unstable exit...!!
What a fool..!!!
