He became tangled in his own parachute.
I can hardly imagine the experience - Plummeting to the ground at breakneck speed, only to realize, in a very sobering shock, that you're tangled among ropes and nylon, armed with nothing more than your own resourcefulness. Amidst the free-falling confusion, came a very clarifying revelation - No one is coming to save me. If I'm going to survive it is completely up to me. The lesson he learned in the air, instilled in him a confidence that transferred well into the business world. After a layoff, he took his career by the reins and has guided and steered it ever since.
