Skydiver's death follows five others at Perris facility last year
Carey was attempting a solo maneuver in the competition about 9 a.m. Saturday when he suddenly plunged to the ground, officials said.
Carey was treated at the scene but died a short time later at the Riverside County Regional Medical Center. The cause of the accident was not immediately clear.
Five people died in fatal accidents at the Perris skydiving facility in 2011. Carey's death was believed to be the 15th since 2000.
Anyone with information about the situation is asked to contact officials at (951) 210-1000 or PerrisStation@RiversideSheriff.org.
