Winds to Blame in Fatal Skydiving Accident

JEAN, Nev. -- One man is dead after a skydiving accident Saturday at Sin City Skydiving in Jean, just south of Las Vegas.

The Clark County Coroner's Office identifies the man as 51-year-old Richard Frazer. 

The coroner's office says he died from multiple blunt force trauma due to bad wind conditions which did not allow the parachute to open and lift properly.
