Two California Skydivers Killed During Jump
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Two North California
skydivers died during a fatal tandem jump this past weekend. According to the San
Joaquin Sheriff’s Office, it is believed that the skydivers’
parachute failed to open during a jump on Saturday in San Joaquin County
with Lodi Parachute Center. Authorities say they received an emergency
call that two skydivers fell to the ground without an open parachute.
The two men were found deceased in the Lodi area, and the preliminary
investigation reveals the parachute malfunctioned. The men are believed
to be in their 20s but have not been identified.
The owner of the Lodi Parachute Center claims one of the victims was a
seasoned instructor with the company, with 700 jumps of experience. The
owner believes the parachute failed to eject but does not know why. Skydivers
at the Lodi Parachute Center did not discontinue jumps for the day but
continued after the deadly incident. The Federal Aviation Administration
is conducting an investigation into the accident.
