Skydiver Tumbles to Earth After Chute Malfunction, Walks Away

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A professional skydiver in Sacramento fell from the sky after a parachute malfunction.

The chute deployed too fast, sending him spinning through the air.

Desperate to fix things, he deployed his reserve chute, only to get it stuck in the already tangled one.

He hit the ground going thirty miles an hour.

But this lucky guy walked away from the scene with merely a dislocated shoulder and some bumps and bruises.
