Hey, DU skydivers
I went out to watch some friends do it the other day. One of the groups that went out had a chute fail and they had to pull the reserve. The people at the skydiving place acted like it was no big deal. So, I'm wondering how often it actually happens...
Anyone?

1. When I was skydiving, which was many years ago,
I saw a diver's chute fail and she had to pull the reserve. Luckily, she landed OK with only a sprained ankle. That's the only time I can recall it happening.
