Ontario Skydiving Fatality

August 29, 2022  By The Canadian Press

INNISFIL, Ont. — Police in Innisfil, Ont., are investigating after a woman died in a skydiving incident.

The South Simcoe Police Service says a woman was critically injured on Saturday after jumping from a plane operated by a local skydiving club.

Police say emergency crews were called to the club area, located about 60 kilometres north of Toronto, at around 5:40 p.m.

They say the woman was transported to hospital where she was pronounced dead.


It comes a month after a 45-year-old Ottawa firefighter died in a skydiving accident at an airport in Arnprior, Ont.

Last June, a 28-year-old man also died in an accident at the Innisfil skydiving club.
