Static line under a T-10. My risers were twisted badly behind my head. As I was "pedaling" free the lines were falling one and two at a time. I believe there were nine broken suspension lines on the right side and suspect they were cut by gear from another jumper. Although they could have been damaged prior to the jump. In case people here are unaware the paratroopers do not pack their own chutes and the Army has a MOS dedicated to this activity. Those people are referred to as riggers. You have no way of inspecting your own chute since it is fully enclosed in a pack tray. There is however a small pack log attached to every chute and the last person to pack the chute is supposed to sign it for accountability purposes. I have jumped chutes packed by Mickey D Mouse, Charles Manson, Your Momma and my personal favorite Sum Ting Wong!

True story.
