Commentary on Fatal Skydiving Accident near Whitewright

Man Killed in Skydiving Accident near Whitewright, TX

It's not clear exactly what went wrong here, and there are all kinds of reasons an incident can occur doing something extreme like skydiving. I certainly can't speculate about what may or may not have happened. That said, news reports mentioned that the company involved had at least one other incident in the last year or two. Maybe that's just a coincidence, but it can also be a sign that a company has issues they need to address. Are those possibilities being looked into here? There's no doubt a family out there that deserves some answers.
