(NEW YORK) — Two skydivers collided in midair Saturday night during CarolinaFest, an annual skydiving event hosted in South Carolina, resulting in one death, according to police.
The body of Bond Springer was found this morning in a wooded area near Skydive! Carolina, a popular “drop zone” for skydivers.
“Both skydivers in the incident were experienced and executing advanced wingsuit maneuvers at the time of the crash,” a statement from Skydive! Carolina said. “No malfunction is believed to have occurred with any equipment and all was normal leading [up] to the collision.”
A “wingsuit” is a one-piece garment that enables a skydiver to glide through the air during his or her fall.
The whereabouts and health of the other diver are unknown at this time. Police said that the case is still under investigation.
