Whitehaven: Red Devil Parachute Fails



An air display by the Red Devils nearly ended in disaster when one of their teams parachutes failed. Thanks to a brave team member both are safe. Gerard Richardson MBE CEO of The Whitehaven Festival company said "We can confirm that the Red Devil parachutists are both safe & sound. For the first time in 25 years they had a parachute fail. One team member caught his team-mate & brought him into Queens Dock. Our safety procedures worked perfectly & a huge thank you to Whitehaven Marina for getting them out of the water so quickly."
