Most reports indicate he was a SEAL, one listed him as a Navy Diver. It sucks either way.
A skydiver was fatally injured today after his parachute malfunctioned during a jump near Dillingham Airfield.
Bryan Cheplic, spokesman for the city Emergency Services Department, said paramedics were sent to Dillingham Ranch at 12:26 p.m.
The skydiver was found in a lake or a pond on the ranch property.
Paramedics treated the man at the scene and transported him to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Cheplic said.
Frank Hinshaw, president of Skydive Hawaii, identified the man as U.S. Navy Seal Kenneth Owens of Aiea, age 27 or 28, originally from the mainland.
