The FAA will investigate, it said in a statement to CNN.
“FAA investigations of skydiving accidents and incidents typically focus on inspecting the packing of the parachute, reserve parachute, and rules of flight for the pilot and aircraft,” 성명은 말했다.
The victim is from Roswell, 그루지야, Polk County Coroner Norman Smith said. Authorities are not releasing her name for now. An autopsy is pending, the coroner said.
