Tragic base jumper’s fatal mistake: Brother of ‘funny’ British daredevil, 33, reveals tragic mistake left ‘no chance’ parachute opened

The brother of a British base jumper has revealed the «simple» mistake he made with his parachute that saw him plunge to his death from a tower block in Thailand.

Nathy Odinson, 33, from Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, climbed illegally to the top of the 29th floor of a block of flats in the coastal resort of Pattaya on Saturday night before unconsciously jumping to his death.

Now his brother Ed Harrison, 39, said chilling video footage of the brave’s final moments showed his mini pilot chute was caught in his harness, meaning there was «no chance» it would have deployed.

Mr Harrison, of St Neots, said that despite his brother’s significant experience – he had undertaken «5,000 skydives around the world» – he made a fatal mistake «without realizing it» and jumped to his death.

Paying tribute, Mr Harrison told The Sun his sibling «will be missed so much… He was fun-loving, fun-loving and had a great relationship with children. He was a hero to my three.’

In the latest image posted on the tattooed daredevil’s Instagram yesterday, Mr Odinson is seen leaning forward with his hands behind his back as he swings through the air wearing a green helmet.

In the latest image posted on the tattooed daredevil’s Instagram yesterday, Mr Odinson is seen leaning forward with his arms behind his back as he whips through the air wearing a green helmet.

Wearing vans and suspended under a green parachute, he slides across the dusty floor for this daring stunt.

He tagged the post with a number of hashtags – including «extreme sports», «adrenaline junkie», «skydiveuk», «chinesetiktok» and «thaiskyadventures».

The same image, which was also posted on Facebook yesterday, has been inundated with followers sending their tributes – with dozens of people posting «RIP» underneath.

Cornish photographer Jordan Colwill said: “Love you forever bro, gonna miss you so much. I can not believe that.»

In the shocking video, Mr Odinson can then be heard landing in a tree before hitting the ground with a sickening thud. Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene.

Pattaya tourist police were alerted to the accident at 7:30 p.m. and rushed to the apartment building in Tambon Na Klua, Bang Lamung district, Chonburi province, and found Odinson’s body on the ground.

A round blue parachute was found on his body, which was not fully deployed.

Traumatized security guard Kanet Chansong, 33, said: “I heard the sound of a tree and thought it was a fallen branch hitting the ground.

“The woman was screaming so I went over and found out it was a person. They were dead. I saw them jump off the building.’

In the video, Mr. Odinson asks the person recording him from the other side of the security wall if the red light on his helmet camera is flashing, indicating he is recording. Realizing it’s not recording, Nathy removes his helmet and presses a button before briefly checking his parachute.

Security said he had already jumped from the building several times, posing a risk to pedestrians walking below

Police have informed the British Embassy in Bangkok, which is contacting Mr Odinson’s relatives in the UK.

His friend, a Thai local, screams ‘oh shit’ when he hears Mr Odinson hit the ground. Emergency services were called shortly after.

Staff at Naklua’s Lumpini Ville apartment checked the CCTV system and saw Mr Odinson and his friend park outside, then wait for quiet before sneaking into the building.

They then headed for the roof of the building, with Mr. Odison climbing over a small concrete wall on the roof of the building to reach the edge.

Security said he had already jumped from the building several times, posing a risk to pedestrians walking below.

He added: “They were creating video content for social media. They’ve done it before and they knew it wasn’t allowed.’

Police and paramedics arrived at the scene shortly after 19:30 local time. However, Mr. Odinson could not be saved.

Police Lieutenant Kamolporn Nadee, Deputy Inspector of Investigation at Bang Lamung District Police Station, said there were no initial signs that Mr Odinson had been attacked.
