The incident involving a military paratrooper occurred on Saturday, October 12, during a parade in Madrid dedicated to National Day of Spain.
The soldier, who was entrusted with the jump with the state flag, almost landed on the square, where the celebration took place. Its appearance should have served as a signal to the beginning of the holiday.
A moment before the completion of the flight, he crashed into a pole and hung on a lighting mast. The man was unable to get out on his own, and was lifted from a height with the help of colleagues who took advantage of the lift.
The paratrooper was not injured and left the place of the "crash" to the applause of those gathered, led by the King of Spain Philip VI and members of the royal family.
According to El Pais , Corporal Luis Fernando Pozo, an experienced paratrooper from the elite paratrooper brigade of the Spanish armed forces, has more than 600 jumps.
At least one person has died and two others remain trapped after an under-construction Hard Rock Hotel partially collapsed Saturday in New Orleans.

Crews were gearing up to enter the building Saturday evening to try and rescue the two.
"We have first responders going into a very dangerous building right now, trying to do their job," a spokesperson for New Orleans Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness said at a press conference. "Please keep them in your thoughts."
The collapse sent 18 people to local hospitals, according to EMS Director Emily Nichols. The victims transported for treatment were now "all stable."

Judging by the record, at least three cars were buried under the debris, and rescuers have not yet been able to reach them. A powerful crane was sent to the place, with the help of which firefighters will try to raise the span.
The culprit of the accident was a semi-truck driver which transported 187 tons of unknown cargo - this is many times higher than the permissible load. Despite the ban, he drove to the bridge but did not reach the opposite side. A man escaped from the crash site.

The cable of the exhaust parachute, which was supposed to pull the main dome from the satchel, wrapped around the body and did not allow the dome to open. The reserve parachute did not save either - its slings were confused with the main one, and Mikhail did not manage to correct the situation since there were about 200 meters to the ground.
The man crashed to the ground with a stone, he died from his injuries before the doctors arrived.
