Moment Brit soldier smashes through roof and lands in KITCHEN after parachute fails in training exercise
The Sun says: A BRITISH soldier cheated death after smashing through a roof and landing in someone’s kitchen when his parachute failed to open fully on a Special Forces free-fall jump.
He had leapt out of a plane at more than 15,000 feet on a High Altitude Low Opening jump known as Halo – which the SAS and SBS use for covert insertions into hostile territory.
But he spiralled out of control when the chute failed to fully deploy.
Local residents called 911 after seeing him plummeting towards the ground in southern California.
The impact punched a gaping hole in the red-tiled roof of a bungalow on the outskirts of Atascadero.
The soldier – who was wearing uniform reserved for UK Special Forces – tumbled through the loft and through an interior ceiling landing in a ground floor kitchen.
Police said bungalow’s residents were not home when the incident happened at 4.55pm local time, on Tuesday.
