Parachutist sustains injuries after landing on roof

A parachutist who landed on a roof while performing her first solo jump may have been “overwhelmed by the experience”. 

The woman, who has not yet been named, is believed to have sprained her wrists when she  landed on top of a residential home close to the Netheravon Airfield, near Sailsbury, on Sunday afternoon.

She had received one days training from the Army Parachute Association in June and was refreshed before the flight, which, according to the British Parachute Association (BPA), was standard practice. 

“All I can confirm is that she was one of our parachuters, it was her first jump and there was very little damage to the house and hopefully very little damage to the student,” Rob Camps, secretary for the Army Parachute Association, told The Telegraph.
