Skydiver who died in New Jersey accident had more than 1,200 jumps  2 Months ago

Source:   USA Today  

MONROE TWP, N.J. — A skydiver who died after jumping from a plane Sunday afternoon had jumped many times before, officials said.

Paul Haaf Jr., 54, was fatally injured at Skydive Cross Keys in Williamstown, New Jersey, shortly after 5 p.m., according to the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office, which is investigating the accident. 

"Haaf was described as an experienced skydiver with over 1,200 jumps and was a frequent visitor to Skydive Cross Keys," the prosecutor's office said in a statement. 

An autopsy determined Haaf, a Monroe Township resident, died of multiple injuries and listed the cause of death as accidental, according to the statement.

The skydiver's parachute was deployed upon exiting the plane, according to a statement from Skydive Cross Keys. 

Monroe Township Police were dispatched at 5:19 p.m. Sunday for reports of an injured skydiver in the roadway. 

The Federal Aviation Administration is assisting in the investigation. 

The incident occurred nearly five years after a 49-year-old man on a group skydiving outing crash-landed in a Monroe Township backyard. 

Arkady Shenker of Brooklyn, N.Y., was killed in the April 20, 2014, accident.
