There's new information about the investigation of two skydivers found dead after their jump Saturday. Authorities plan to review footage from a helmet camera worn 40-year-old Orvar Arnarson during his fatal jump Zephyrhills.
Pasco County sheriff's spokeswoman Melanie Snow said investigators will review footage from 41-year-old instructor Orvar Arnarson's camera.
At this time, the medical examiner found that Arnarson and Pordarson died from blunt trauma and the manner of death was determined to be an accident.
Saturday night, Sheriff's Office found the bodies of two men, one experienced skydiver, Arnarson, the other a student, 25-year-old Andrimar Pordarson with just eight jumps under his belt, in a wooded area near Zephyrhills Municipal Airport off Yonkers Road.
The skydivers were part of a group from Iceland jumping with Skydive City in Zephyrhills. Their plane left around 10:30 AM, with 22 people on board. When only 20 returned, Skydive City called Zephyrhills Police. Later, the Sheriff's Office was called in to assist, and took over the investigation.
The longer the search went on, the less confident Skydive City owner David T.K. Hayes was that the men would be found alive.
