Parachuting Death

WINNIPEG - RCMP are investigating after a Winnipeg woman was killed in a parachuting accident near Gimli.

The Mounties say the 53 year old woman's parachute appeared to open at the proper altitude after she jumped from a plane on Saturday but she entered a spin and hit the ground.

They also say she was an experienced skydiver and wearing proper safety gear.

Investigators say there were three other people on the plane and there was no issue with the aircraft.
