Two skydivers were killed Tuesday
after a midair collision over Eloy, Ariz., the local ABC news affiliate is reporting.
The incident reportedly occurred around 4:51 p.m. at Skydive Arizona, with witnesses telling police the collision happened about 200 to 300 feet in the air before both divers’ canopies collapsed and they fell to the ground.
The area is a well-known skydiving destination. Over the weekend, a group of women from around the world shattered the female vertical formation skydiving record when they linked hands from a jump at 18,000 feet above Eloy.
The victims’ names were being withheld pending notification of next of kin, according to ABC 15.
