One skydiver dead, other injured after jump with Skydive Sebastian

SEBASTIAN One skydiver died and a second was injured Friday afternoon during a jump with Skydive Sebastian Inc., according to police.

No names or information about the skydivers was released as police continue to investigate the 1:16 p.m. incident. The condition of the surviving skydiver was not immediately released.

Police and rescue officials swarmed the Sebastian Municipal Airport and surrounding areas Friday afternoon as they investigated. Sebastian Police Capt. Bob Lockhart said the death happened just west of the airport and the injury happened to the north.

Sebastian Police Chief Jim Davis confirmed the fatality and was told it was a tandem jump. However, further information only confirmed both skydivers jumped out of the same plane.

Tommy Schmidt of Vero Beach was mowing lawns in the Collier Creek subdivision, on Roseland Road, when around 1 p.m. he looked up and saw a group of skydivers coming down over Sebastian Municipal Airport.

"I saw two on a parachute and one detached and fell. I heard screaming as the individual fell to the ground. Then I heard an ambulance," said Schmidt, who then drove a half mile to the scene at the west end of the airport. "The man was on the ground motionless."

About 500 yards away, a parachute was on a power line, he said. Shortly after 2 p.m., officials were removing a blue parachute tangled in power lines on airport property just west of Skydive Sebastian.

Additional details about the incident were not immediately available.

I have been 4 times already and it is a blast...Sebastion is a cool place to go, and it only cost 200 to do a tandem jump. The 300 is if you want to spend 8 hours doing a class then jump with an instructor holding your hand instead of on your back. To do the tandem you walk up sign papers and in twenty minutes or so away you go. Definitely worth going at least once.

LOL man yyous compairing apples with oranges! I mean how many more people are driving than skydiving. I've flown more people our in helicopter that were in skydiving accidents than car/motorcycle accidents combined. Not everyone dies from it but when you have a broken femur pelvis fracured skull or back... That a sh it load of medical bills. The heli ride along is like 15 grand and that even counting what they do to you in the truama center. I'd rather die then have to pay medical bills for the rest of my life LOL
