Skydivers die after failing to deploy parachutes

PASCO COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - Authorities are trying to figure out what went wrong on a skydiving trip that turned deadly in Pasco County.

A group of tourists from Iceland rented the equipment from TK Hayes of Skydive City in Zephyrhills. Two of them failed to deploy their parachutes. Their bodies were found a short time later.

The company's co-owner says the gear was working properly at the time, but that remains under investigation.
