U.S. Navy Leap Frog Killed During Fleet Week Accident

A United States Navy Leap Frog parachutist was rushed to the hospital after an apparent parachute malfunction Sunday afternoon. 

The United States Coast Guard rushed into action just after noon on Sunday when a member of the United States Navy Leap Frogs landed in the Hudson River after supposedly detaching from his parachute.

In the video below, the Leap Frog's parachute can be seen falling from the sky before coming to rest in a parking lot.  

The parachutist was rushed to Jersey Medical Center, where they were later pronounced dead. The victim's name is being withheld while next of kin are notified.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the U.S. Navy Leap Frogs, as well as friends, family, and the entire Navy Seals community.
