CHESTER COUNTY, S.C. — A Charlotte woman was killed Sunday in a skydiving accident in Chester County, according to the Chester Coroner’s Office.
Amie Begg, 33, was killed after a “hard landing” at Skydive Carolina around 2:30pm. Emergency crews pronounced Begg dead at the scene.
A news release from Skydive Carolina says Begg’s parachute deployed without incident. The company goes on to say the fatal injuries were sustained during the landing process following an advanced parachute maneuver.
Begg recorded more than 800 skydives. The Skydive Carolina community says they are in shock and are mourning the loss of a fellow jumper who was a positive light to all.
