South Simcoe Police say a man has died after he was involved in a skydiving accident in Innisfil.

Shortly after 12:00 p.m. on Thursday, officers say they responded to a call for help in the area of 10 Sideroad and Line 4.

A local sky diving club informed police they were trying to locate one of the skydivers and were concerned for their safety.

Police say a plane took off with four skydivers on board and all participants jumped, as planned.

One man, a 28-year-old from Toronto, separated from the group while in the air. His body was later discovered by police in a nearby field. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers say next of kin have been notified and that the victim’s name will not be released.
