Dropzone: Nyiregy Haza Hungary

Skydiver comments:

Having reached the opening altitude I could not reach the opener of the main canopy, and I was losing height quickly. Finally I could open the main canopy, but it enwinded to my leg.

A high-speed emergency situation has developed, which has been solved by vigil, because it has opened the reserve canopy, thus saving my life.

Skydiver comments:

On a DEMO into an open field.
Exit altitude 5500AGL pulled at 3500 no response from my main so I reached again could not find my throw out. Spent to much time trying to get my main out,
thinking I had a partial main malfunction I pulled my cut A way. I must have been in a head down position when the AAD fired. The reserve came out clean but
my right side riser was still attached and the left side riser was hooked to my left foot on my smoke bracket. I was in a stable position until my main started to
inflate and put me in a left spin until I hit the ground.
Again I am 100% convinced that your Vigil saved my life

Skydiver comments:

Two way wingsuit jump. Uneventful until break off and when I reached for pilot chute I lost control and went into a flat spin. Could not regain control and could not
reach my pilot chute. I knew I was getting close to my hard deck and tried to pull my reserve handle but due to velocity of spin and suit being fully inflated I was
also incapable. My hard deck rang in my ears and I was still on my back in a spin, last ditch attempt at my reserve handle and I successfully pulled it. I didn't know
my AAD fired until I got back to the dropzone and saw the knife cut the cord. I have no idea what came first, the knife cut or the handle cut, but needless to say I'm
very glad to have had a AAD!
