Singaporean dies in tandem skydiving accident near Sydney: Report
SINGAPORE: A Singaporean man was killed in a tandem skydiving accident in Sydney's rural south west on Saturday (Jul 15).
The man, who was in his 20s, had been skydiving with an instructor, who was in his 60s, with the company Sydney Skydivers, according to Australian media.
Sydney Skydivers' dropzone base is located on Picton Road, said The Sunday Telegraph, but the men, who were believed to have died on impact, were found in a driveway of a home a few hundred metres away at Wilton Road.
Sydney Skydivers owner Phil Onis told the newspaper that the instructor was "an experienced skydiver".
"We are keen to get in there and find out what happened. This has never happened before," he added.""
A most unfortunate n deadly acl8cident. RIP to the 2 dead victims.
Skydiving is inherently a highly dangerous activity. The 20 plus is WAY too young n can obviously contribute a lot more in future.
As for the 60 skydiving instructor, that must bellh the last thot on him minds.
May the authorities can find out what r the reasons for this n prevent it f rrecurring.
