Skydive kills two despite reserve chute opening

Investigators are looking into what went wrong on a skydive jump that left both participants dead, despite their reserve chute deploying. CNN's Brooke Baldwin speaks with meteorologist Chad Myers and Craig Stapleton, a skydiver who escaped a skydiving scare that occurred when his parachute failed to open properly.

    Details?? Is it saying THREE main chutes failed, but one landed OK? [and Craig Stapleton, a skydiver who escaped a skydiving scare] – – – who are these divers and where are they getting their chutes from?! ! !

    I had this exact problem, and I had to haul in and throw my reserve canopy 3 times before it finally deployed cleanly. It's not unusual to have the reserve become entangled with the main, if the main is still attached. If the main's holding any air at all, you don't want to cut it away - but keeping it raises the risk of the reserve becoming fouled. I'm a bit surprised that the experienced jumper didn't realise the descent rate was fatal and cut away/deploy the reserve earlier. You have 20-30 seconds to resolve this issue, and then you have to act decisively.
