Friday Freakout: Skydiver Nearly Impacts Mountain!

Holy [email protected]%, this is scary! This video should emphasize the importance of a proper spot, even if you're not the first group exiting... especially over mountains. Audidbles and AADs didn't help in this situation because they were set for a landing area at a much lower altitude, and drifting in freefall may have also been a contributing factor. If anything, learn from this video to avoid the same mistakes; it could've ended much worse. There has been some debate over whether he should've used his reserve (textbook emergency procedure) instead of his main (instinct). Thoughts?
