Police on Florida's eastern coast say a skydiver died and a second one was injured during jumps from the same airplane.

No further information about the victims was immediately
released.

Police said they were handling the investigation as two separate
incidents, though both skydivers jumped from the same airplane run
by Skydive Sebastian Inc.

The company's manager, Amanda Owens, said these kinds of
accidents are rare, and one victim was an experienced jumper.

The condition of the surviving skydiver was not immediately
released, but on-scene officials described the injuries as
non-life-threatening.
