He's very lucky just to still be alive. Most of these types of incidents result in death.

Second airman dies from parachute accident


By Jeff Schogol, Staff writer 2:03 p.m. EDT August 4, 2015


A second airman has died from injuries during a parachute training accident Monday at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida.

Both airmen served with the 24th Special Operations Wing. Their names are expected to be released later Tuesday.

The accident happened during “routine military freefall training,” according to a 24th Special Operations Wing news release, which did not provide details of what went wrong. Both airmen were rushed to local hospitals.

The Associated Press initially reported on Monday that one airman died and the second was in critical condition. On Tuesday, the 24th SOW announced that both airmen died of injuries sustained in the accident.

Investigators are looking into what caused the accident, the news release said.
