Skydiver comments:

The parachutiste made 3-way flat relative work jump from 4,000 meters which was uneventful, as was the brake off and deployment.
On trying to release the brakes, the right hand braked released normally but the left did not. He let go of the right hand brake to use both hand on the left. The parachute entered a tight left hand spiral and started to descend rapidly. He failed to release the left brake, failed in an attempt to stop the turn with the right brake toggle. He lost awareness of altitude, when he made his decision to cut away experienced some difficulty locating the cutaway handle, probably due to the speed of rotation. He release the main and pulled the reserve handle just after the Vigil had fired.

Skydiver comments:

Wingsuiting at 4000ft i reached for my pilot chute, found it but couldn't pull it out (had several hard pulls before with new rig) Went back into stable flight position and tried to pull again until I got my 2000ft alarm. Grabbed my reserve handles and wanted to cutaway (out of habbit for emergency drills)
Released reserve handle cause I needed 2 hands for peeling off my cutaway pillow, went in stable position again for maybe 2sec or so waiting for skyhook that didn't work ofcourse :) reached again for reserve handle and pulled but found out later my Vigil just fired before my pull. Landed safely in the forest.
