Two Fort Bragg soldiers had just finished a routine training jump and were on chute detail when they heard a radio transmission that one of the paratroopers had landed in a tree.

Staff Sgt. Daniel Johan Mackie and Staff Sgt. Valentin Staneata continued their work collecting parachutes. But as the hours wore on, they heard over the radio that the jumper was stuck in the tree, and rescue efforts had been unsuccessful.

“I started to get concerned when I heard a transmission over the radio that the paratrooper’s legs started to go numb,” Mackie said.

The night jump was on Jan. 24, and the temperature had dropped below freezing.
