According to the police report, “Skydivers were able to exit the balloon without incident and complete their skydiving incident and that’s when something catastrophic happened and the balloon crashed to the ground.”

Eloy Police Chief Byron Gwaltney wrote, “At this time, the Eloy Police Department is actively collaborating with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the investigation of this incident,” in a statement.

“We extend our deepest condolences to the families and friends of those who have lost their lives in this tragic incident and our thoughts are with Ms. Stutterheim as she receives medical care,” wrote the police.

Eyewitnesses described the balloon’s last moments, and the injured survivor is receiving medical care.

The crash occurred at the world’s largest drop zone for skydivers, and the investigation is ongoing.
