GEORGINA, Ont. - There's been another skydiving death at the Parachute School of Toronto in Georgina, Ont.

York police say a 39-year-old man died Saturday evening when his jump ended with a hard landing.

They say the man was an experienced skydiver, and that his parachute had opened.

There have been two other fatal jumps connected to the school in the past year.

In May, 28-year-old Alana Shamrock died after experiencing equipment failure, and last year 42-year-old Igor Zaitsev was killed after losing control of his parachute.
