A skydiver taking part in the “Dink Dink Boogie” at Grand Haven Memorial Airpark died Saturday afternoon as the result of injuries while landing a jump.

“We do have a parachute accident, a skydiving accident, and we do have one male that’s deceased,” said Sgt. Lee Adams of the Grand Haven Department of Public Safety. “We’re still working on interviewing witnesses. It seems to be an accident. … There have been some people saying that there was a close call, almost a collision. We’re still trying to confirm that with witnesses.”
