On Monday May 2nd he did his first jump just fine, according to the people with him.
Then the next day, Tuesday May 3rd around 10-11 am he was doing his second jump, got off fine, but then apparently was not stable enough, did not track well and started to open too late just when he hit the wall, his helmet with the camera falling off his head and down on the ground, the chute opened from the impact, he dragged down a bit along the cliff and then stopped his back on the cliff, facing the outside, his system holding him from falling all the way down.
Did not answer to the radio calls from his friends, they called the rescue team who came swiftly within minutes but then it took them some time to get to him on the cliff.
Once reached by the rescue team, pronounced dead severe head, face and body damage, apparently died immediately on impact.
He was a great and very bright guy loved by all of his friends, colleagues and family
Coming from Evgeny chernatskiy's brother in law..
