Experienced Skydiver Sends Chilling Video To His Wife Before Jumping To His Death

He sent a chilling video of his plan to kill himself to his wife moments before he jumped off the plane.

An experienced skydiver sent a video to his wife telling her he will go “somewhere wonderful” before jumping to his death from 35,000 feet above the ground.

Vitantonio Capotorto, a 27-year-old Italian national, said “he wasn’t going to pull the cord” of the parachute. Initially, everybody thought it was an accident until they saw the final message he sent his wife.

Vitantonio Capotorto did hundreds of jumps already.

Before he had jumped off the plane, Costanza Zitellini, his wife, rushed to Skydive Deland, Florida, in the hopes of stopping her husband from committing suicide. She was too late – he had been off the plane when she arrived.

Vitantonio and his wife, Constanza.

Capotorto was found face down in a field near Skydive DeLand, one of the popular skydiving places in the country, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Tara Richards, an employee of the skydiving hub, told police that the skydiver seemed normal before he jumped off the plane. A chaplain was called to the location to let Constanza know that her husband had died from the jump.

The video has not been released to the public. Meanwhile, Mike Johnston, the general manager at the facility told News-Journal:

“We give our (customers) a safe ride to altitude and we transport them using aircraft that has been considered the best maintained in the industry. When a person steps out the door, they are responsible for themselves.”

For years, he had been skydiving.

Vitantonio Capotorto works for the United Parachute Technologies, a company which makes containers for parachutes. He already performed 600 jumps. The reason behind his suicide has not been released. The authorities can’t recall any other case of suicide from skydiving.

According to the United States Parachute Association, skydiving continues to improve in terms of safety. However, 21 people had died in skydiving accidents in 2016 in the United States. That’s out of about 3.2 million jumps.

Recently, in Thailand, a 70-year-old man fell off while parasailing. The operators claim that he unbuckled his safety harness while doing the activity.

Uber to Exit Southeast Asia for Stake in Rival Company Grab

Uber’s stake could become smaller.

Uber Technologies Inc. has reached an agreement in principle to sell its operations in Southeast Asia to local rival Grab Inc. This exit comes in exchange of as much as 30% stake in Grab, according to reports. Uber and Grab have yet to issue official statements.

The deal will involve Uber's major assets in the region, but it could possibly exclude small pieces of the Southeast Asian operations.
