A skydiver from San Diego died during a competition at the Perris Valley Skydiving facility in Riverside County.
Officials said, 35-year old Sean Carey was performing a solo maneuver when he crashed at about 9:10 a.m. Saturday.
Carey was treated at the scene and transported to Riverside County Regional Medical Center where he later died, according to a media release.
Carey was an instructor at Skydive San Diego in Jamul. He was said to be a highly experienced skydiver having completed 1700 jumps in one year.
"He was just a happy, upbeat guy," said Colleague Buzz Fink. "He was part of the family of skydive SD; always willing to do whatever was needed. He just loved what he did. He couldn't get enough of it. He lived and breathed skydiving."
