Reply To: SOS Parachute: The New Must Have Exec Accessory?

Seems to be fully open after falling 4 floors then a further 2 to slow down, so only good from say floor 7 upwards. Even then, inexperienced jumpers would likely suffer broen limbs at best or death at worseif you land in the middle of a busy highway or indeed smash against another building.

I guess it would have a use in cataclysmic events such as 9/11 where there was no chance of rescue above the floors where the planes hit, but otherwise would need a good act of faith to jump with it.

Personally I’d rather wait for the rescue services with wet towels at the bottom of the door and all the other things I’ve learnt about in years of travel but happily have never had to try.
