LAKE ELSINORE, Calif. – Authorities say a skydiver has been killed and another suffered minor injuries after their parachutes collided during a jump in Riverside County.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says one parachute lost its lift after being hit by the other Friday afternoon near Lake Elsinore.
One skydiver fell to his death. Details of the surviving skydiver's injuries were not immediately available. Their names and genders have not been released.
Gregor says the FAA will investigate.
Last weekend, two skydivers fell to their deaths in Northern California when their parachutes became entangled with a third.
