A 59-year-old Florida woman was killed in a skydiving accident in upstate New York when her parachute apparently malfunctioned, police said.
Karen Bernard, of Wildwood, jumped out of a plane in the area of County Highway 34 in the town of Westford shortly after 9 a.m. Saturday, according to state troopers.
The woman’s brother Terry also announced her death on Facebook.
“It is with a sad heart that I need to notify you, her family and friends that Karen passed away Saturday July 24th in a skydiving related accident,” he wrote.
