The weather was freezing but there was nearly no wind. Papy reportedly knew this 65m (210ft) bridge well and had nearly 200 jumps from it in 2 years with many of them stowed.
As Papy jumped alone, no one knows the exact circumstances but Papy died from impact while the canopy was in its deployment sequence. It is possible that he delayed too long, missed his stowed PC and had to reach again, or had a PC hesitation.
