Why is Sky diving Dangerous?
The first and foremost point against sky diving is that you can’t afford to make mistakes when sky diving. Because of the nature of the sport, all accidents are dangerous. “As soon as you leave the aircraft, you will be falling at speeds ranging between 100 and 120 miles per hour.” Not being able to handle your parachute in various situations can send you to a free-fall state again and leave you with very little time to react. Many jumpers have died because when they realized that their main parachute was confused, they were too close to the ground for the reserve parachute to open. The chances of surviving a fall going that fast are least. The smallest mistake can be the difference between life and death, and beginners make a lot of mistakes.
Moreover is that luck doesn’t come to all. There is a percentage of deaths in sky diving related to equipment failure. Even the most experienced sky diver may have technical difficulties with his/her equipment. There is no way to guarantee that the parachute will open, that’s why in the drop zones before jumping, you sign a paper where it says there is a chance you might die
