Disgraced YouTube star Logan Paul found himself in a scary situation while on a training skydive a week ago. The vlogger posted a picture of his cut-up pack onto a couple of social media sites stating that he was forced to cut the main parachute because it failed to deploy.
He said, “the feeling of the blue reserve parachute opening & functioning properly was miraculous this has never happened to another student before at this school. LP lives on.
Luckily, Mr. Paul was outfitted with a reserve chute that did ultimately deploy, saving his life in the process. Generally, skydive students and tandem skydive instructors wear packs that have reserve canopies. The packs have Automatic Activation Devices that indicate to the reserve chute the need to deploy should the skydivers encounter an issue with their main, allowing them to land safely.
In an Instagram post, he went on to say, “Maverick lives to fight another day. Yo, this happens to .1 percent of people. My instructor was wearing a 360 [degree] camera so I am going to post a vlog.”
Although Mr. Paul hasn’t uploaded any videos since his infamous publishing of a video in which he filmed an alleged suicide victim. The video was recorded in the Aokigahara Forest in the Chūbu region of Honshu in Japan, a well-known location in which numerous people have taken their own lives.
The video and Mr. Paul received a ton of backlash and has since been removed. Mr. Paul apologized in a number of videos and even pledged a donation of a million dollars in suicide prevention efforts.
Despite his expressions of regret, he remains persona non grata in the minds of many fans and the parents of younger viewers who had previously watched his content. The greater majority of these fans are now calling for his channel to be banned from YouTube.
