He got slow on the climb out and spun into the trees.  His straps were not done up and when the aircraft hit the branch that you can see in the photo, he left the Grob through the screen. The engine was going at 3300 rpm but the prop had been smashed by the branch. He went through the prop disc and hit the ground before the aircraft. You can see all the dirt on the wing from the spinning stubs of the prop. He was very lucky to get away with a bust leg and a few smashed teeth. Had his straps been done up, I think he would have walked away from it.
