Two people have died following a skydiving tragedy in the Southern Tablelands of New South Wales.
Police said emergency services were contacted about an aircraft carrying two skydivers that was “in difficulty” just before 1pm on Sunday in Goulburn, about 195km southwest of Sydney.
“Two parachutists fell from the aircraft and landed near the runway of the airport,” police said in a statement.
“They were located unresponsive and unable to be revived.”
NCA NewsWire understands the parachutists were men aged in their 30s.
Hume Police District officers will investigate the circumstances of the tragedy, with the assistance of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau.
A report will also be prepared for coroner.
