Friday Freakout: Skydiver Gets Stuck Hanging Under Helicopter By Chest Strap!

Posted by Andrew R.

As a group of skydivers climb out of a helicopter to hang from the strut, one of the jumpers’ chest strap is caught on the strut and she gets stuck hanging from the heli! Luckily there were other jumpers still inside the helicopter who could help her out (you’re awesome Ted), and everyone stayed calm to solve the problem.

Heli jumps are super fun, but the safety briefings tend to be a little too brief and basic, and an incident like this might be one of those “you don’t know until you know” situations. If this wasn’t a scenario you’d previously considered, now you know and can remind other jumpers during the safety briefing before your next heli jump.
