A 53-year-old Winnipeg woman is dead after a skydiving accident at Gimli Industrial Park, Manitoba RCMP said.
The incident took place Saturday evening, and police were called to the scene around 7:25 p.m., where they found the woman unresponsive on the ground.
Despite emergency medical efforts, she was pronounced dead on-scene.
Gimli RCMP said the woman was a very experienced skydiver wearing appropriate safety equipment, but although her parachute seemed to open at the right time, she went into a spin and crashed to the ground.
There were no issues with the aircraft itself, police said, and the incident remains under investigation.
