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.
