Airborne soldier’s fatal accident

A Thai paratrooper’s static line failed to release his chute, leaving him hanging from the back of the plane. After getting dragged behind the plane at speeds in excess of 100 mph it looks as if the jump master released the paratrooper’s static line. The paratrooper attempted to open his reserve, but it was too tangled and he fell to his death.
