This past weekend Emily Berkeley passed away in a Denver hospital from extensive injuries sustained during a swoop landing after a hop & pop at Mile-Hi Skydiving in Longmont, CO.
This was Emily’s third jump of the day and she is reported to have been working on her swooping with an instructor. On her final jump, the turn was simply too low to allow for recovery.
Emily was a current jumper that held several certifications, including both AFF and PRO ratings and was a local jumper at Mile-Hi.
A memorial service is scheduled at Mile-Hi on December 23rd, 3:00-6:00 PM.
Our condolences to all of Emily’s friends and family.
