It’s that old chestnut. Dude goes to Florida, gets on top of a large hotel and decides to parachute off it. Parachute doesn’t open. They have to mop him off the sidewalk.
A man plunged to his death in Florida after his parachute failed to open when he jumped from a hotel balcony, authorities said.
The unidentified man leaped from the 14th-floor balcony of the Sunrise Beach Resort Sunday evening in Panama City Beach, news station WMBB reported.
He had been attempting to BASE jump — an activity in which people leap from a building or antenna, among other fixed objects — but his parachute didn’t open in time, the outlet reported.
