The jumper was new to the sport and had only done a static jump from 3000 ft earlier and was allowed AFF the next day. As per media reports, the main canopy opened improperly and started to spin around the jumper due to heavy winds. Jumper failed to open Reserve in time-either due to panic or due to inadequate training, which opened only 200 ft above ground which was ineffective. Jumper was rushed to the hospital but was declared brought dead.
