Information from a jumper standing back off the ramp has said that when he exited he was totally head down to the point he believed he would need to do a flip to correct his position.After a few seconds he heard him impact the wall a few times and was then under canopy with no inputs until he came to rest on a ledge underneath via Ferrata impact point.
