    Skydiving Malfunction Puts Parachutist In Spin Until He Was Able To Cutaway


    This close call saw a skydiver go into a perpetual spin, due to his parachute malfunctioning and becoming tangled until he was able to cutaway the chute and land safely.

    Aleksey Gubanov was the quick-thinking skydiver that was taken for a twist whilst falling to the ground over Whiteville, Tennessee.

    The G-force pulled Aleksey around in a manic motion as he was trying to correct the spin, eventually cutting away and releasing the reserve chute.

    Aleksey said: "I was afraid for my safety, I knew something was wrong as soon as I deployed the main parachute.

    "I tried to fix the problem but the rate of spin plus G loading was too much for me to handle.

    "It scared many people from wanting to go skydiving. Many are shocked by how fast and aggressive the parachute spins."
