British BASE jumper dies after parachute fails to open

A British base jumper tragically lost his life after his parachute failed to open when he leaped from the 29th floor of a Pattaya condominium. The incident occurred at 7:30 p.m. yesterday and was filmed by a friend who was waiting for him on the ground floor, according to Naewna newspaper. The jumper, identified as 33-year-old Nathy Odinson from Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, was found near the exit of Building B of the condominium complex, with his blue parachute beside him.

“BASE” is an acronym that represents the four categories of fixed objects from which one can jump: buildings, antennae, spans (such as bridges), and earth (such as cliffs), as explained by Wikipedia. The deceased had reportedly sneaked into the condo, parked his vehicle outside the compound, and then made his way to the top floor to carry out the jump. His friend on the ground was recording the leap, likely for social media content.

The security guard, Mr. Kanet Chansong, heard a loud sound, initially assuming it was a falling branch. Moments later, a passerby screamed, and when he looked, he saw the deceased British man. The police were immediately notified.

According to Pol. Lt. Kamolporn Nadee, a deputy inspector at Bang Lamung police station, there were no signs of assault, and the friend’s video clip showed the jumper’s failed attempt. It appears that the parachute did not open, leading to his fatal impact with the ground.
