A skydiver has a premature opening in the middle of a 14-way formation skydive. Yikes!

It’s unclear from the footage exactly what caused the premature opening, but you can see the jumper has an unstable dock and ends up on his back, and the pilot chute was already out of the BOC by the time he flips onto his belly.

Needless to say, this could have been MUCH worse had there been a collision or entanglement with another jumper as premie opened.

Maybe it was a loose BOC, or his hackey got caught on something, or the pilot chute wasn’t fully tucked into the BOC and caught some air when he was on his back, or….?

Can you see anything in the footage that I might have missed? Let us know below.

    I'm a newer jumper, had only two group jumps and stuff like this scares me. I really don't want to be gift wrapped by someone's canopy. For now I prefer solo or small group jumps.
