Jumping out of a plane is thrilling but also very dangerous. 65-year-old Richard Gomez of Berwyn is dead after his jump from Skydive Chicago took a deadly turn.

The La Salle County Sheriff’s Office and the Wallace Fire Department got called around 10 Sunday morning for a skydiver who had a “hard landing” at Skydive Chicago in Ottawa.

The sheriff’s office continues to investigate the fatal jump along with the Federal Aviation Administration.
