What do we believe happened?

Abraham exited solo in his V4 with leg pouch PC and was flying a technical line. About 15/20 seconds later jumpers watching him from the exit point began swearing in shock and said he panic pulled just before reaching the Zebrata/climbing wall and had disappeared behind it.

He died on impact.

Abraham will be missed by many jumpers as he has been in the Base scene for the last few years always smiling and enjoying his time in the Mountains..
