Sky diver killed after falling to the ground in Perris
Authorities are investigating the death of a man who died while sky diving near the Perris Valley Airport on Tuesday.
The accident was reported just after 2 p.m. at the Perris Valley sky diving range after friends in the diver’s group unsuccessfully attempted to resuscitate him, said Corporal Courtney Donowho of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.
“He had already jumped out of the plane and somehow was injured as he was landing,” Donowho said.
Donowho described the diver as “experienced” but could not release the name of the victim until the family was notified.
She added that the Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the incident with local authorities.
