Incident Details

May 27, 2017 Location of the incident: , Type of Incident:

I was kiting from sod field about a half mile away. I observed two paramotor pilots flying north of my location at approximately 2000 feet. One of the pilots initiated a steep turn which developed into a spiral. The rate of rotation increased until I observed the wing and pilot descend below the tree line. At first I thought the pilot had recovered and was still below and behind the trees. I observed the other pilot make a slow descent and land in the field. I immediately stopped kiting my wing, jumped in the truck and drove to the scene of the accident. I called 911 and tried to console pilot Corey Reynolds who had unsuccessfully attempted CPR.
