2 skydivers killed in tandem jump in Northern California
California — Two skydivers were killed after making a tandem jump in Northern California, authorities said.
The men, in their 20s, died Saturday in San Joaquin County, and have not yet been identified.
Authorities received a call that the skydivers had hit the ground without an open parachute, said Lt. Randy Johnson of San Joaquin Sheriff’s Office.
A preliminary investigation indicates the parachute did not open, Johnson said. Their bodies were found in a vineyard in the Lodi area.
The skydivers were jumping from an area considered popular among enthusiasts.
The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating.
