Sky­diver sur­vives af­ter tan­gle un­der plane

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

Dan­ish po­lice say a small plane with an en­tan­gled sky­diver hang­ing un­der the air­craft for about an hour was able to land safely, and that the jumper only sus­tained bruises. Po­lice spokesper­son Hen­rik Hoegh-Poulsen told Den­mark’s TV2 Thurs­day the Cessna 182 landed Wed­nes­day evening on foam spread out by fire­fight­ers to cush­ion a grassy area at an air­field near Hol­ste­bro 300 kilo­me­tres north­west of Copen­hagen. Pi­lot Leif Jo­hannsen said he had failed to cut the static line at­tached at one end to the air­craft and at the other end to the top of the jumper’s de­ploy­ment bag.
