Skydiving death at Moruya

Emergency services were at Moruya Airport yesterday afternoon amid reports a skydiver had died.

Bypassers said paramedics could be seen performing CPR on the person, at about 4.30pm but they were unable to save his life.

About 4.10pm (Tuesday 18 December 2012) a man landed heavily at an airfield at Moruya after undertaking a solo skydive.

The man, believed to be aged in his 30s, suffered critical injuries and died at the scene.

A Skydive Surfside said the Australian Parachuting Federation had been called in to investigate the incident, and police were called to the scene also.

Police will prepare a report outlining the circumstances surrounding the man’s death for the information of the Coroner.
