Nasty entanglement/ double mal/.... Double malfunction incident in Germany in summer 2004: The jumper deploys his main but has a mal because of a line snagging on the container. (later found to be a problem with this container design..)

The jumper cuts away and pulls his reserve - the reserve freebag gets entangled with the main canopy that didnt releases completely. After a few seconds he is able to pull the reserve (113 sqft.) out of the freebag just with his hands!!

Due to the main canopy the reserve doesnt inflate completely. He lands VERY hard but survives with minor injuries!! He is ok and still jumping!

Here is posted some pictures and write up (in german) here

Equipment was
