I tried to call over there after I read about this earlier today to learn more but noticed the late hour and decided to hold off until tomorrow. If he was on a flat kite, something that rendered the lines in uneven length may have been responsible (e.g. broken or seized pulley, bridle snagged wing tip, or some other critical tangle, etc.). Learning particulars about the appearance of the kite, lines and control bar after the accident would be very helpful. Also, in addition to the type and size kite what the wind conditions were like would be helpful as well. As I understand, very strong winds aren't common in that area, or am I mistaken in this?
I do not get yet over it, a Kiter without success reanimates and, in the end, to have to see dying. IÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â´m very sad.
My sincere condolences count for his girlfriend, his family and his friends.
I can tell you that nobody really understands how this tragedy could have happened.
Because I wish that it does not come to speculations about the possible accident procedure, I would not like to say at this point a lot in addition, except that during this tragic day wind ruled between about 17 and 23 knots - small a little gusty, but not extremely.
The Kite was 10 m Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â² C-Shape from 2008, and because I myself have flown a Naish Cult 7.5(62 kg) the Kite elective by the Kiter suited according to the relations.
Only one autopsy can probably clear at last the reason for the cause of death. Maybe even cardiac infarction, unconsciousness after a fall or cervical break???
I wish the members a lot of strength to get over the loss of a beloved person.
