3rd Recon Parachuting Death

I didn't see this posted. Happened this past Monday.

https://news.usni.org/2018/01/24/22-...cident-arizona.

I'm unfamiliar with a "double bag" parachute jump, but did some of the testing on static-line squares BITD at Quantico. Seems like sort of the same thing.

Rest in Peace Corporal Romero.

Rest easy, Marine.

When I was running around with 2nd Force a couple of years ago, DBSL was the only SL system they were using.

Apparently he had a cutaway and got tangled up..........DBSL is extremely safe and I'm unaware of any incidents since it came on board around 2005'ish. He was just married 3 weeks ago, RIP Brother.

BNT, here's a short vid of DBSL and you can get a feel for the opening sequence. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snvXuTp9Fvg
