Red Devil Catches Team-Mate After Parachute Fails to Open


An army paratrooper from Britain´s famed Red Devils display team was caught mid-air by a fellow team member when his parachute failed to open properly at the Whitehaven Air Show Friday night.

"It was obvious the top jumper was wrapping his legs around the ropes of the parachutist below. His legs were carrying the weight of the man below and his tangled parachute," a witness says.

The parachutist was too close to the ground to deploy his backup chute. A message on the show´s Facebook page said both were "safe and sound".
