Type of Incident

Thompson immediately knew something was wrong but couldn’t recover because he lost altitude in rapid fashion. By the time he deployed his reserve parachute, it was just too late. We’re told the reserve chute did in fact deploy, but not in time. Authorities have reviewed footage from a camera mounted on Grant’s paramotor, and it appears a change in the updraft caused the paraglider to malfunction. It’s unclear if it twisted … but we’re told Grant died on impact, less than 4 seconds after the problem surfaced.
