Skydive Toronto previously released a statement saying the victim was a “recent addition” to the skydiving community.

“The skydiver releases a quick-rotating main parachute at low altitude without the time/altitude required to inflate the reserve parachute,” the statement said.

“Jumper is a welcomed recent addition to the skydiving community and will be missed among Skydive Toronto Inc.’s new friends and fellow jumpers. The team at Skydive Toronto Inc. has been deeply affected by this accident as they have improved their student training program for over 50 years.”
