  • A skydiver in Florida sent a video to his wife saying he wasn’t going to pull the cord on his parachute minutes before jumping to his death from a plane. The skydiver Capotorto Vitantonio, is seen in the above undated

DeLand Police said Vitantonio, 27, jumped and did not pull the cord to deploy his parachute.

In the video, Capotorto said that he was "going somewhere wonderful", and that he wasn't going to pull the cord on his parachute, according to police records obtained by The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported Friday.

Capotorto Vitantonio's wife, Costanza Zitellini, ran into sky dive centre Sky Dive DeLand, around 40 miles north of Orlando, Florida, US, after receiving the horrific clip.

Officials began to search for Vitantonio from the sky and the ground.

Employees at the skydive centre told investigators the Italian national seemed "normal" before going up in the plane but was later found face down in a field.

An initial investigation suggests that the man reached the hotel by swimming from a nearby beach and attacked the tourists. The attack came only a few hours after five policemen were shot dead in Cairo's twin city of Giza.

Licensed sky diver Capotorto Vitantonio leapt to his death Tuesday - just before his wife begged dispatchers not to let him jump.

Vitantonio's #suicide is reportedly the fifth death within four years at the skydiving center.

Yet to be necessarily understood is what led to Vitantonio seeking his suicidal death and why the man had chosen dying in such a dramatic fashion and why the husband declined reaching out to his wife or any other individual or entity before his plan....?

Mike Johnston, a general manager at the facility told The News-Journal earlier this week that Capotorto's wife had arrived "moments too late". All level of skydiver from beginners signing up for a first tandem jump to experienced groups of skydivers who want to jump out of multiple planes.
