UK army parachutist rescues teammate after chute fail

A parachutist with the British Army’s Red Devils stunt team rescued a fellow jumper in a midair drama after his parachute failed during a stunt jump.

The dramatic scene played out above the heads of anxious spectators at the Whitehaven Airshow in Cumbria, northern England.

A statement on the Facebook page for the airshow said one of the parachutists’ chutes failed to deploy properly.

Brian Sherwen, an official photographer for the event who witnessed the incident, said he saw the two men “dropping through the sky.”
