Skydiver’s Reserve Bridle Entangled With Main Parachute

Andrew ReveszBy Andrew Revesz

Line twists suck, especially when the bridle of your reserve is entangled in them! Zero fun. This skydiver’s malfunction was caused by a broken closing loop on his reserve as he deployed his main parachute. The reserve bridle quickly wrapped around his main lines, which were in line twists, and he decided to fight it by kicking out of the line twists instead of cutting away.

What would you do in this situation?
