Skydiver kills self by not opening parachute

17 July 2017

A skydiver found dead at Skydive DeLand earlier this week jumped to his death after informing his wife through a video that he was going "somewhere wonderful", according to a police report.

Before he had leaped from the plane, his wife, Costanza Zitellini, had run into Skydive DeLand trying to stop him.

Tara Richards, an employee at Skydive DeLand, told police that Capotorto arrived for the first load of the day and seemed normal, according to a written statement. Image via Facebook.Pictured Deland, Florida skydiver, Capotorto Vitantonio.

But, by the time the message got up to the crewman who were on the plane with Vitantonio, he had already jumped from 13,500 feet.

An experienced skydiver jumped to his death from a plane after telling his wife in a final message that he was not going to pull the cord on his parachute.

Police searched the area around Skydive DeLand on Flightline Bvld. for Vitantonio and found him face down in an open field near the runway at around 10 a.m., according to a police report obtained by the Orlando Sentinel.

Police say in the video Vitantonio told his wife he was "not going to pull the cord and that he was going somewhere wonderful".

Officials called a chaplain to the scene to tell Zitelleni of her husband's death. As the Washington Post shared, authorities initially thought the incident was a skydiving accident.

Both he and his wife worked for United Parachute Technologies, a local firm in DeLand that makes parachute containers. This is reportedly the fifth fatality at Skydive DeLand in the past four years.
