Andrius Pantaleao’s horrified instructor frantically tried to save him as the businessman hurtled towards the ground after jumping in Brazil. Footage recorded on a camera attached to the instructor’s helmet – shows the freak incident unfold. It shows Andrius launch himself from a plan at a skydiving centre in Boituva. His instructor can be seen holding onto his sleeve to check all is as it should be.
Andrius can be seen indicating he knows where to release the parachute from, at the base of the backpack. The guide then releases Andrius – but he quickly starts to spin at pace. His panicked instructor can be seen desperately trying to save him – managing to briefly grab hold of Andrius’ leg. He then releases his own parachute as Andrius spins out of the picture. Andrius was found dead after plunging 6,500ft free fall and hitting the gate of a house.
