Skydiver falls to his death not far from Skydive Chicago

Posted by wlpo on October 23, 2016

Drifting off course proved to be the difference between life and death for a skydiver who went down north of Ottawa.

Paramedics from Marseilles and La Salle County deputies were called just after 10 o’clock Sunday morning about a skydiver who went down with a head injury. The victim who hasn’t been named yet apparently hit a large sign where his parachute got tangled.

The man was flown to Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove where he was pronounced dead.
