A botched jump at a military base that left 22 soldiers injured was allegedly the result of miscommunication, not weather, as one official had argued.

Paratroopers told the Washington Examiner that “s— just didn’t line up” between officials on the airplane and officials on the ground. More than 20 soldiers were injured in the faulty jump at Camp Shelby.

Another soldier argued that leaders in the plane tried to force too many soldiers out all at once.

Col. Bobby Ginn, the commander at Camp Shelby, has blamed wind for the mishap.
