One of my college roommates broke his ankle during Ranger school b/c his chute tangled. He crawled/hopped over a mile to the rendezvous point to try to pass/qualify.

No. He took longer than the allowed time. From what I understood his entire class was failed for this. It was the 7th jump.

His main chute failed, and his emergency chute was twisted and he had to bicycle-manuever to free the lines, but his terminal velocity was still faster than his ankle could support. He did go back later and complete Ranger school.

BTW this guy dropped out of Stanford grad school to volunteer for this as a shot at getting action in DS1
