Found July 07, 2013 on The Other Paper:
A skydiver's premature release of his deployment bag turned into a near disaster for a group of helicopter jumpers and its crew and the whole tense three-minute scene was caught on video. Careless or accidental, the jumper's D-bag got tangled on one of the landing rudders about 10,000 feet over the farmland below causing the wind to open a wind-resistant main chute which could have potentially pulled the whole chopper down with it.  A cool-headed dude hangs out the door and patiently pulls in the flapping chutes and untangles the cords and hands them to fellow skydivers still inside the helicopter. Common sense dictates that the guy just cut the lines free but he probably didn't want to risk any loose lines or pieces of the chute getting caught in the rotors. Good thing they were all wearing parachutes.
