In October 2013, a complication happened that forced him to land in a Vine Yard, which was not an ideal place. Crowdrise athoritatively stated that as Andy Wirth was landing a pole tore his arm and he lost a lot of blood from the brachial artery.
He was found by a fellow skydiver called Amanda after fifteen minutes. Wirth was transferred to hospital, where 12 units of blood were added to his body.
