13 Oct

Three people died in a “horrific” skydiving incident in northeast Australia after a solo diver collided with a pair on a tandem leap.

The accident occurred at a popular skydiving spot at Mission Beach, a coastal tourist town south of the city of Cairns in the state of Queensland.

One of the victims landed in the front garden of a house and the two others were found entangled in a nearby tree on a banana farm.

Queensland police said the victims were two males who were highly experienced skydiving professionals, aged 34 and 35, and a 50-year-old woman customer. The woman has been named by local media as Kerri Pike, a mother of eight.
