Hanging By A Thread (GIF)

I am not a parachuting expert, but apparently this guy got hung up during a UK military parachuting exercise are required the use of a HUPRA to safely release him.

One thing is for sure; it doesn’t take an expert to figure out that this is some scary sh*t.  Could you imagine being stranded thousands of feet in the air while being dragged along by a plane traveling 150 mph?  Perhaps the only thing scarier would be free-falling from that height, at that speed, without a parachute.

No need to fear though.  This troop would be alright after a safe landing.  Here is a video of the entire incident.
