Skydiver texts wife to say he won't pull cord when jumping

Before the jump, Vitantonio texted a video to his wife, Costanza Zitellini, describing his plan, telling her "I'm going somewhere wonderful".

A man who received the phone for Skydive DeLand declined to give any details about Vitantonio deaths, but offered the following statement: "We express our deepest sympathy for his family and his friends".

Mr Capotorto, an Italian national who lived in DeLand, was an avid sky-driver who had made more than 600 previous jumps.

DeLand Police released a revised report Friday saying Vitantonio's wife, Costansa Litellini, 25, received a video from her husband saying he was "not going to pull the cord and that he was going somewhere wonderful".

An experienced skydiver told his wife in a video message that he would not be deploying his parachute, but she was too late to save him, according to reports.

The centre said Mr Capotorto was a licenced sky-diver with the appropriate training to jump alone and had paid for the flight.

Officials began to search for Vitantonio from the sky and the ground.

A skydiver texted his wife just minutes before his jump to tell her he wouldn't be pulling the chord to open his parachute on the way down.

A chaplain was called to the scene to let Litellini know that Vitantonio had died.

This was the fifth reported fatality at Sky Dive DeLand, which is considered one of the nation's busiest skydiving points, since 2013. Last year, 3.2 million people jumped out of planes with parachutes on their backs, according to the United States Parachute Association.
