There was a fatal skydiving accident over the weekend at Lost Prairie, the seventh in the last five years. An investigation is ongoing as to what exactly happened to cause the experienced diver to not deploy his shoot.

Zack Fogle of Kingston, Washington had jumped out of a plane over 125 times. Fogle was a quadriplegic with limited function in his arms and legs. Even so, the parachutes have a computer device that is designed to trigger the opening of the parachute if it is not manually pulled.  Investigators discovered the device had never been turned on prior to the jump. The investigation is still ongoing.
