This accident was very expensive and I have lost partial vision in my right eye. Wing exploded on impact and my harness got shredded in pieces so that is why my harness didn't float. The back piece had blown out and it was nothing there to keep me afloat. I literally almost drowned. There are many things we can do to make ourselves safer while doing maneuvers. Wearing life jacket should be mandatory on every clinic.
Yes I did have my reserve and you can see it out just seconds before impact. I throw it as soon as I heard my instructor telling me to do so. My opinion is that he gave those instructions too late. He was saying I was fine so I thought I was. I had no idea I was so low.
