Man killed in parachute jump
Sunday 23 August 2009
A skydiver has fallen to his death at the same airfield where a fellow enthusiast died in mysterious circumstances six years ago.
The man, who has not been named, was fatally injured following a parachute jump at Hibaldstow airfield in north Lincolnshire yesterday.
In 2003 a 20-year-old army cadet, Stephen Hilder, fell to his death after his parachute was sabotaged during a skydiving championship.
Humberside Police said they were not treating yesterday's death as suspicious. In the Hilder case, police launched a murder investigation, but concluded he had probably cut the straps himself. He had debts of £17,000 and thought he had failed his military exams and that a relationship was about to end, the inquest into his death heard.
