The incident, which is being investigated by the Federal Aviation Administration, happened about 4 p.m. at Skydive Spaceland Atlanta in Cedartown. County Coroner Norman Smith confirmed that the 26-year-old woman fell to her death. Her name was not released.
“Our hearts hurt for this young lady and her family and friends, as well as our skyfamily,” said Sarah Skroch, operations manager at the Polk skydiving business. “Skydivers are a close-knit group and this hurts all of us deeply.”
