The third parachute jumper involved in the accident that took place on Sunday at the Clinceni Airfield is in a critical condition. The man’s heart stopped on Monday morning but doctors were able to bring him back to life after dozens of minutes of efforts. The parachute jumper is instructor Adrian Constandache (43). According to Bucharest Air Club representatives he carried out a total of 4,000 jumps in his career. He is currently hospitalized at Floreasca Hospital with head trauma. On Monday, his colleagues asked for help from blood donors on Facebook.
Instructor Adrian Constandache carried out a parachute jump in tandem with a 27-year-old woman on Sunday. Andreea Nica was at her first parachute jump. Parachute jumper Dan Floroiu (49) followed them. His jump record included 100 jumps. It seems he jumped too soon and collided with the instructor and the young woman at a height of 70 meters, all three subsequently falling to the ground.
Dan Floroiu went into cardiac arrest and died on the spot. Andreea Nica suffered chest trauma but was conscious when doctors took her to the University Hospital. She later died. She was a handball goalkeeper at CSM Slobozia handball club.
“I can’t believe Andreea is gone. We parted ways on Saturday, at 2 p.m. I wanted to talk with her some more, she seemed sad, but I said to myself I should let her calm down,” her coach Victorina Bora stated for ‘Gazeta Sporturilor.’ “She was a very good child, an intelligent girl who put a lot of heart in everything she did,” CSM Slobozia’s head coach added.
The accident is investigated under the coordination of Bucharest Court of Appeals prosecutors.
