By Luke Voogt

A skydiving accident has killed one person and left another with life-threatening injuries in Torquay this afternoon.

“The pair were doing a tandem jump when they got into difficulty and crash-landed in a paddock on Fischer Street shortly before 1pm,” a police spokesperson said.

One person died at the scene while an ambulance helicopter airlifted the other person to hospital in a critical condition.

Police will prepare a report for the coroner.
