Arizona man dies in Calif. skydiving accident
PERRIS, Calif. -- A man who died in a Southern California skydiving accident has been identified as a trainer of military skydivers from Arizona.
The Riverside County Sheriff-Coroner's office identified the victim of Friday's accident in Perris as 29-year-old Jason Granger of Yuma, Ariz.
Skydive Perris manager Dan Brodsky-Chenfeld said Granger was a qualified skydiver who trained members of the military in free-fall skills.
Brodsky-Chenfeld said Granger had traveled to the popular Southern California skydiving spot with his wife and family to make the jump. The manager said when Granger neared landing he made a turn too low to the ground and crashed.
Brodsky-Chenfeld said the weather was clear and the equipment was fine.
Military officials were unable to provide additional information.
