Skydiver comments:

I was leading a 3 way. Exited upon the pilot turning the light green. Got into position as front outside the aircraft and noticed the airspeed was very fast. I struggled to make a count and let go and hit the tail. I was paralyzed but still conscious. I fell until the vigil fired.
Thank u for making the vigil and saving my life.
(The pilot switched the green light by mistake during the climb).

My Brake gone out during angle jump, and this brake line blocks around me - I cutaway, this brake line doesn’t let go the POD - It was still above me without openning the suspent block the freedom.
I debated to undo the line, I was not slow down because the main canopy will not open. By the time I managed to let the POD, I took my rescue handle to late my cutter save my life … Thank you Vigil !!!
