The paratrooper jumped out of the plane a minute before the disaster, leaving his son inside


The tragedy happened near the Irish city of Edenderry.

Parachutist Chris Kasprzhak made a jump from the plane, leaving on board his seven-year-old son Casper. A few minutes after the jump, the aircraft crashed. The boy and the pilot died. Investigation of the circumstances of the incident involved the police, reports the Daily Mail.

An experienced parachutist from Ireland took his son with him, as he was very fond of flying and in the future dreamed of following in the footsteps of his father. In addition to Kasprzhak with his son, there were also 15 paratroopers on board the aircraft, who successfully jumped.

A few minutes after Kasprzhak was overboard, the aircraft abruptly changed course and fell to the ground. Pilot Neil Bowdich and seven-year-old Casper were killed.

The landed Kasprzhak was simply in despair of grief. In trying to get his son's body from under the wreckage of the plane, he began to dig the earth with his hands.

To investigate the circumstances of the tragedy, an investigation team was formed. Pilot Boudich was a professional. His former colleagues do not believe that the plane crashed because of his fault.
