Two Dead In Skydiving Incident South-West Of Sydney

News.com.au is reporting that the men landed on the driveway of a rural property, traumatising children who lived there.

It was meant to be an experience of a lifetime, but for one young man, his life tragically ended after he was killed, along with his instructor during a skydiving accident in Sydney's south west.

A crime scene has been established at the property.

It is understood they were completing a tandem jump, supervised by Sydney Skydivers.

"I was in shock, I couldn't believe it", she told Daily Mail Australia.

Another skydiver in an earlier group told Fairfax Media that concerns about the wind directions were raised before their jump, but her jump was straightforward.

Skydive death
NSW Ambulance was called to the scene in Picton where the skydivers’ bodies were found just after 2pm on Saturday

Sydney Skydivers has reportedly been involved in at least four deaths since 2001.

The main focus will be on the equipment, as long as it's not too badly disturbed...

"When we arrived on the ground we didn't know what had happened".

"We do have our best investigators on site now assisting the police and the Coroner's Department", Mr Turner said. "It's a shocking thing for a young girl to see".

The chief executive of the Australian Parachute Federation, Mr Brad Turner, said its investigators were assisting the police.
