ROSHARON, Texas -- A missing skydiver thought to have gone home after not returning from a jump was found dead two days after his parachute apparently failed to open, authorities said. Scott Bell, 35, was found Friday in an overgrown field about a mile from the Skydive Spaceland hangar where he worked, Brazoria County Sheriff's Lt. Russ Baker said. The maintenance worker had jumped Wednesday. Bell lived in a trailer on the company's property. Baker said co-workers didn't find it unusual when they didn't see Bell following the jump.

"On the last jump of the day, a lot of guys just go home," he said. A search for Bell began Friday after a pilot spotted what appeared to be a canopy in the field, Skydive Spaceland staff attorney Lee McMillian said. Bell's chute apparently failed to open and the backup malfunctioned, he said. Rosharon is about 35 miles south of Houston.

Just a sucks to be you.

It's only another dead schlep who fucked up. If his chute didn't open it most probably means he did something wrong or didn't inspect his shit right.

Good for him.

Sucks to be him, but you have to hope that he died quick, cos what a desperate and fucking lonely way to die that would be... laying screaming in a field covered by a parachute you didn't pack properly, and everyone thinking you went home early. That's why I'll not jump out of a perfectly good plane.

Sucks to be that guy. Parachutes have a failure rate, I think the odds are slightly better than the lottery.

I don't know, you could make an argument for unlucky lottery. If he died because of a defective parachute anyone could have grabbed it.
