SR22 CAPS Deployment

This was kindof cringe-worthy. For some reason the controller thought this aircraft had reported only 17 mins of fuel remaining, but later the pilot said he had over 30 mins. Pilot missed the first approach and was vectored back for another runway. Something happened and the CAPS deployed to prevent a deadly crash.

If I remember correctly, a Cirrus about 3 and a half hours from where I live also deployed CAPS after an engine failure.
