A 27 year-old man has died at Harvey Field this afternoon following a skydiving accident. The victim had been skydiving with a group of people, but it is not clear if he was part of a group that hired out a company to coordinate the dive. Witnesses verified that the victim deployed his parachute, but came in too fast when he landed. Emergency aid was called and arrived around 4 p.m. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.
Identification of the victim, as well as cause and manner of death, are pending results of the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office investigation.
