Just how dumb can you be? Doing the Horizontal Mambo with your skydiving partner’s boyfriend is just asking to have a crap load of silverware come from your parachute pack. Can you say “Wile E. Coyote”? I knew you could.
Found this on CNN:
BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) — Authorities have opened a murder investigation into the death of a skydiver, saying they believe someone tampered with her parachute in an apparent fight over a lover.
Els Van Doren, 37, fell 13,000 feet to her death last November after her parachute and emergency chute failed to open.
A fellow female skydiver was detained for questioning last week and is the “prime suspect” in the investigation, prosecutor Michel Zegers said Wednesday. No charges have been filed.
Investigators believe Van Doren and the suspect, who belonged to the same parachute club, also dated the same man, a Dutch national identified as “Marcel.”
News reports say the suspect killed Van Doren in a jealous rage after learning Van Doren had an affair with her boyfriend.
They call that “Burning In” and it’s really not a bad way to go, all things considered – when you’re the one that is deciding it’s time to check out.
Oh, and the victim was videotaping the whole way down, and cops have the tape.
I wonder how long until I can get it on YouTube?
