(MARSHALL) - An Angola man was killed on Sunday morning in a sky diving accident in Marshall, Michigan. Police in Marshall identified the victim as 76-year-old George Speakman. They say the accident happened at about 11:00am near Brooks Field. Speakman was found on the ground just south of the airport.

Marshall Deputy Police Chief Scott McDonald told the Battle Creek Enquirer that Speakman, who was an experienced skydiver, was with some other skydivers but they didn't exit the plane after realizing something was wrong with Speakman's jump.

It's not known yet what happened. The Federal Aviation Administration is assisting Marshall Police and the Calhoun County medical examiner's office with the investigation.
