Pardazi’s death comes more than a month after a skydiver showed off his final moments before he was killed in a crash in southeastern Brazil.
Andrius Jamaico, 38, died after falling off a roof in the city of Boituva, São Paulo on July 19.
Footage obtained by Brazil’s TV Globo network shows Jamaico receiving instructions from a skydiving instructor, Paulo Mirkai, as the businessman prepares to jump out of the plane with other skydivers.
Jamaico jumped out of the plane with Mirkai holding onto his arms and legs and at one point confirmed to the instructor that he knew the location of the breakaway handle by touching the lever.
The skydiving instructor, who was fitted with a camera on his helmet, then released Jamaico, who seemed to have gained control before he suddenly stared to spin around.
The instructor was able to grab Jamaico’s leg but he lost his grip.
Jamaico, who had only parachuted for the third time, continued to spin as the instructor deployed his parachute with the landing spot rapidly approaching.
He fell about 6,500 feet from the sky and hit the mansion’s zinc roofing before falling to the ground. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Andrius Jamaico only skydive for the third time since he was killed after crashing into the top of a house on July 19 in São Paulo, Brazil
A still image from the video shows Andrius Jamaico skydiving moments before he appeared to lose control, falling atop the house where he was killed in São Paulo, Brazil, on July 19. Authorities The cause of the crash is still under investigation, but the sheriff said the 38-year-old was unable to open the parachute correctly.
