  • $\begingroup$ These kind of questions do really extend our later-thinking abilities. Some of these are simple and require no tangent processes, while others really push the limit. I think this is valid riddle. $\endgroup$ – NexusInk Jan 24 '18 at 13:06

I think

he jumped out of a helicopter (or some other aircraft :P) and tried to open a parachute (which is supposed to be a backpack I guess...) and it uh...kinda failed to open? So he died...whoops.

But, I don't know

how he was going to survive anyways because he jumped out in the middle of the ocean...like even if the parachute worked...

He is

Scuba diving (most likely surface scuba diving) with a backpack on.

He's lying face down in order to see underwater, and the uniform in question is, in fact, the diving suit he's wearing.

Or maybe (just to add some silliness to the otherwise grim-looking situation)

a sailor on shore leave got blackout drunk and passed out in the McDonald’s ball pit.
