Description of events as best known-

George was filming with a Drone pilot , the footage shows George attempting to Launch into a steep Chute on the mountain side, As his wing lifts it inflates a little faster on 1 side than the other , he continues to run as the wing is oscillating slightly from side to side above him he adds brake inputs to try and correct it , as he pushes off before the wing has sufficient speed to begin to start flying , he adds a little more brake in attempt to get off the ground and the wing stalls , resulting in him impacting with the earth and then sliding down the chute and off the cliff face.
