WINNIPEG — A woman has died in a parachuting accident north of Winnipeg.

RCMP say the 53-year-old was an experienced skydiver and was wearing proper safety gear when she jumped from a plane Saturday near Gimli, Man.

They say her parachute appeared to open at the proper altitude but she entered into a spin and hit the ground.

Paramedics pronounced her dead at the scene.


Police say three other people were in the plane at the time, and there were no issues with the aircraft.

The investigation is ongoing.
