Below came from USFRA Facebook fan Szymon Ka (he's a US Parachute Association member)...
According to USPA, 13 people died during skydives in the U.S. in 2018 and this is the lowest annual fatality number since 1961, when USPA began keeping statistics. Although fatal accidents are now rare, injuries while skydiving do occur.
Below is an EMS training lecture by Rich Grimm at Skydive Elsinore discussing skydiving injuries. Rich explains what a typical skydiving jump looks like, types of gear and suits, general skydiving safety rules and more. He also talks about mechanics of injuries and presents how to release injured skydiver from his harness and disconnect main canopy.
I hope you find this video useful. Regards from Poland Szymon Ka
