Two skydivers recently attempted an extremely dangerous maneuver called the Canopy Relative Work which includes one of the skydivers grabbing and holding the canopy of another’s chute. This maneuver is famous for linking together a multitude of skydivers which form extremely beautiful shapes during a dive.
Victor Bryie, who was one of the divers, unfortunately suffered some serious problems with his parachute that led to his free fall from an altitude of 9,000 feet.While attempting the maneuver his chute became tangled in his buddy Shaun Phillips’s chute during their dive.
They both jumped from 14,000 feet before their parachute lines enlaced in each other mid air. Miraculously, Phillips was able to break free from their dangerous ensnared twist and open up his parachute 3,000 feet off the ground. However, Victor Briye remained tangled in his lines and his chute did not open fully. He plummeted with great speed to the ground.
Despite the great injuries due to the hardcore landing, Victor survived. He was rushed immediately to a local hospital where his condition was stabilized.
