I thought the same. I would have taken my chances with the chute rather than a sure death in the plane crash. Who knows? I am no skydiving expert but perhaps once the plane is in vertical descent, I would imagine jumping out is not as easy as it sounds.
At any rate, the guy is still a hero no doubt.
