Had his main chute malfunctioned he would be in for a rough landing, assuming his secondary one would deploy without a hitch :|

Had the red guy's chute malfunctioned, he would probably panic and endup a pancake.

To me it looked like that guy was a total amateur trying some "cool" moves up in the air. Until it was time to open the chute. When he took his hand down to reach for the pull he lost his balance. You can see it twice there. Then he totally looses the control. Lucky for him the cameraman was more skilled and reacted not a second too late. As you can see, he is first turning the other guy around (belly towards ground) and took the chute out of the bag.

It might be possible if the chute wasn't correctly packed?

#6 yes he looked like an amateur, not very smooth. That's a ride he'll never forget!
@ 3:05 he's still almost upside down as the shoot is deploying!
