Narrative:
Cirrus SR22 ran into some kind of trouble last night following recent maintenance and subsequently lost power. The pilot decided to use the parachute (CAPS ) survival system. The area that this occurred over is St. Mary Parrish, Louisiana, which features some truly inhospitable real estate... especially come evening. The pilot is fine and it appears that the aircraft has suffered minimal damage... though it looks to be a chore to get it out of its current locale.
