The guide then releases Andrius – but he quickly starts to pick up pace.

His panicked instructor is seen desperately trying to save him – he manages to grab Andrius’ leg for a moment.

He then releases his own parachute as Andrius spins out of sight.

Andrius was found dead after freefalling from 2,500 feet and hitting the gate of a house.

Police are now investigating the incident.

It comes after two female paratroopers suffered life-threatening injuries after falling to the ground at 120mph in a horrific incident captured on video.

The women lost control after their parachutes were deployed while tandem skydiving in Racine County, Wisconsin.

Meanwhile, terrifying video shows the moment a skydiver at 10,000 feet was knocked out by the cold when another jumper crashed into his head.
