    Quadriplegic skydiver's paralysis likely led to fatal free-fall



    i am confused as to whether i should mourn someone who was brave enough to skydive repeatedly (unlike myself) or should i have an awkward chuckle at the bizarre circumstances?
    even Death cocked an eyebrow at this one, i do believe.

    I would think if you are a quadriplegic person even if you have a custom parachut it would be safer to do those tandom jumps or at least have a jump buddy to go with you. Sill sad he was not very old at all.

    Sounds like someone who was living on borrowed time, in light of his previous accident. He may have cheated death the first time, but his demise remained but a hop, skip and a jump away.

    That was an extremely stupid thing to do. I'm trying to think of an analogy to compare it to, but that's just dumb. May sound a little harsh, but he got what was coming to him. Stupid.

    I'm searching for the related article about a blind person skydiving, and what happened to the dog.
