Parachutist death at wind turbine

A 23-year-old woman from Schwerin died while making her first parachute jump when she hit a wind turbine at the Lemkenfeld wind station on the German island of Fehmarn in the early afternoon of Sunday, May 28. Her name has not been released by the Oldenburg police. The wind is believed to have blown her off course towards the wind station, while her instructor and another member of the Lübeck parachuting club got down safely, according to the regional Kieler Nachrichten newspaper. Other press reports state that strong winds were blowing on May 28 and the victim was blown several kilometres off course. The Oldenburg police have passed the case to the public prosecution office at Lübeck.
