    Update on our parachuter. Picture of house he fell through.

    Amazing he only had a few injuries. Holy crap a tile roof.

    They run jumps near my house everyday, great views of the Space Center. Been a few who tried to drill new wells but surprising very few accidents.

    He just "dropped" in for a visit. Didn't stay long though.

    Wow…at least the drag of that chute streaming helped slow him down. What a miracle!

    The sheathing under the tile looks like cardboard.

    Crazy! I saw a story I think on Mysteries of the Unknown or something like that about a lady that was skydiving and her parachute didn't work. She fell on a red ant hill and all of the stings triggered a huge adrenaline rush in her body that saved her life. It was pretty wild.

    ...or wet OSB. You would think a hole that large would reveal a truss.
