Geriann Henderson, 26, has been identified as the woman killed Saturday while tandem skydiving over Maricopa.
Originally from Colorado, she had recently moved to Mesa.
Seriously injured in the crash was Skydive Phoenix instructor Todd Dimauro, 40. Both of his legs were broken.
“The incident is being investigated by our agency in conjunction with the Pinal County Medical Examiner and the FAA,” Sheriff Paul Babeu said. “Mr. Dimauro is a very experienced jump instructor, and it looks like all of the safety measures were in place. Witnesses reported that both parachutes deployed, but something went terribly wrong just before hitting the ground.”
The incident happened around 10:30 a.m. near Hidden Valley Road at Bowlin Road.
