A skydiver in Florida sent a video to his wife saying he wasn’t going to pull the cord on his parachute, minutes before jumping to his death from a plane.
An incident report released Friday by the DeLand Police Department says Capotorto Vitantonio’s wife ran into Sky Dive DeLand Tuesday after receiving the video and begged an employee to stop her husband.
The employee radioed up to the plane, but it was too late.
Vitantonio had already jumped. The report says that Vitantonio, an experienced jumper, didn’t open his parachute.
According to the report, Vitantonio told his wife, Costansa Zitellini, 25, in the video that he was going ‘somewhere wonderful.’
The Sky Dive DeLand employee told investigators that Vitantonio seemed ‘normal’ before going up.
Vitantonio, an Italian national, was found with his face down in a field southeast of the runways at DeLand Municipal Airport, according to The Daytona Beach News-Journal.
He was 27 years old.
