Putt hanging on rim of basket

So this has happened to me once before, but this time I got it on video while practicing in the backyard. Put hits chains and proceeds to bounce out of basket, only to get caught on the rim of the basket but hanging outside of basket.

I think this used to be legal and count as in, but I'm pretty sure they changed that rule and this would now not be considered in under PDGA rules.

Anyone care to weigh in on if this is considered "in" the basket?

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.

Basket Targets: In order to hole out, the thrower must release the disc and it must come to rest supported by the chains and/or the inner cylinder (bottom and inside wall) of the tray. It may be additionally supported by the pole...
