(AP) ELOY, Ariz. - ELOY, Ariz. (AP) â€” One person has died in a skydiving accident in Arizona where parachutists were attempting to set a world record.
World Team spokeswoman Gulcin Gilbert said one skydiver died in the accident but had no further details.
The accident occurred Thursday during an attempt to break a world record for what is called a "formation jump."
A group of 220 people from about a dozen countries free-fall from about 18,000 feet, then come together in a formation before separating and doing another formation. They then pull their parachutes.
Skydive Arizona in Eloy has been the site of other skydiving deaths in recent months.
Two skydivers â€” from Germany and the United Kingdom â€” died in November as their parachutes collapsed and they fell to their deaths during an attempt to set a jump record.
