Did you know that there’s an experienced skydiver who filmed his own death after jumping off a plane forgetting his very own parachute.
An experienced parachutist filmed his own two-mile death plunge after he fell from an airplane while carrying a video camera but apparently without realizing he had no parachute, investigators said Tuesday. Officials declared the death Saturday of Ivan Lester McGuire, 35, of Durham, an accident.Franklin County sheriff’s Capt. Ralph Brown said there was no foul play and no indication of suicide, although “a man who has jumped 800 times ought to remember his parachute.” The videotape shows McGuire leaving the plane, apparently without problems, Brown said. Other parachutists then jump and free fall, but disappear when they pop their parachutes and McGuire plunges on toward the ground at 150 mph.
