The Jackson County Sheriff's Office says a sky diver died in a parachute crash in White City Sunday afternoon.

Deputies went to the scene of the parachuting accident in the 6800-block of Antioch Road. Witnesses told deputies that the sky diver appeared to lose control of the chute as he approached the planned landing zone, and spiraled to the ground.

The Sheriff's Office says further information will be released Monday in order to allow time for the medical examiner's investigation and family notification.
