Bad Day Paragliding

You know your having a bad day when you invert your paraglider only to fall through your canopy. For most pilots this would be enough bad luck for one day but this pilot didn’t stop there. With a leg intertwined with the main canopy lines he somehow manages to throw his reserve below him, only to fall through his reserve also. Double trouble going on here.

The results were a mess of canopy and reserve lines intertwined with a leg and an aggressive aspiration to regain the upper hand on what remained.

We have to admire the strong survival skills this pilot displayed after making two major mistakes.
