Suddenly On His Own

I'm adding this to my list of reasons not to jump out of a perfectly good airplane.

Daniel Pharr steered himself and the instructor clear of a house and trees, touching down about 0.3 miles (0.5km) from the intended landing point.

Initial indications showed the instructor had suffered a heart attack after releasing the parachute.....

Mr Pharr, 25, said that once on the ground he had tried resuscitate the 49-year-old instructor, but to no avail.
