80-Year-Old Nearly Falls Out Of Harness While Skydiving (Video)
80-Year-Old Nearly Falls Out Of Harness While Skydiving
[link to www.huffingtonpost.com]
But something goes terribly wrong early in the jump. Laverne appears to nearly fall out of the harness, and her partner hangs on to her for dear life.

“The upper harness came off, you know," she said in a recent interview with CBS Sacramento, available below. "Just slipped down, it was just the lower harness, is all I had.”

Fortunately, the parachute deploys and the pair lands. The video ends with people on the ground rushing over to the aid of the Laverne and her partner.

“This happened a long time ago and everything worked as advertised,” Bill Dause, the owner of the Parachute Center, said in a statement to ABC News. “No one got hurt or injured.”

But the Parachute Center has had its share of accidents. According to CBS Sacramento, at least eight people have died at the Parachute Center in the last decade, most recently in April.

I saw that and must admit, tandem skydiving scared the shit out of me for that very reason.

You only have 4 clips tying you to a parachute.

When you jump individually (did 13 jumps) you are strapped in.

So yeah, if you want a rush, do a tandem jump.

Do not take memories of what happened yesterday, into what might happen today.

What I found odd was they were in street clothes? That doesn't seem right.

That was how the fatal hang gliding accident happened here in Canada. Tandem.

It is a public mill operation. You get a couple of minutes "instruction" and go. For a tandem jump you are trusting your instructor with your life.

But the Parachute Center has had its share of accidents. According to CBS Sacramento, at least eight people have died at the Parachute Center in the last decade, most recently in April.

Just make sure the place you are jumping at has NO deaths.

When they were at the door it looked like she had second thoughts and changed her mind. The poor lady grabbed the sides of the opening numerous times like F that but the instructor kept yanking her hands away. The only reason she almost fell out is because he actually jumped out of the plane over her forcing her down with him and out of her harness.

This.....that was a poor exit and her leg loops slid down to her knees....the jump should have been aborted when she froze at the door....

The way he was forcing her out, he's lucky she didn't fracture something!
I'm actually surprised she wasn't hurt worse.

Well I would think street clothes could be a hazard. Anything loose or buttons/snaps etc.
