As a member of the US military, who is on jump status currently, I can tell you that there are a couple of fatalities every year. It’s simply a risk you take. Total failures, cigar rolls, blown sections, etc. Then you factor in the human element on things such as steering into wires/trees/water, getting tangled with other jumpers, there was even a case last year of a guy dying after landing on a roof and not collapsing his chute fast enough (and then pulled off the roof).
Anytime you leave an airplane that isn’t parked on the ground, you take a risk. 99.99% of the time, nothing comes of it. But when you do have a failure, it can become very catastrophic very quickly. But there’s a reason people see me deep in prayer from the time I get on the plane to the time I’m on the ground.
