Dead Navy SEAL’s parents sue gear maker | SanDiegoUnionTribune.com

The parents of a Coronado Navy SEAL killed in a June 2014 parachute training accident are suing the manufacturer for design defect, negligence and wrongful death, in a case that involves parachutes in wide use by U.S. special-operations units.

A Navy investigation found that Chief Petty Officer Bradley Cavner’s death was caused by a gust of wind prematurely deploying his reserve chute while he stood in an aircraft doorway, readying to jump.
