There is currently a missing skydiver in Lake Tahoe, CA.
Three skydivers jumped from a helicopter over Lake Tahoe at 8am this morning. They jumped somewhere above South Lake Tahoe’s Pope Beach.
Two of the three skydivers landed in the waters of Lake Tahoe while the third jumper landed on the beach. One of the two skydivers that landed in the water successfully made it to shore. The other skydiver that landed in the lake has not been found. The missing man is reported to be from the Lake Tahoe area.
Police are currently searching for the missing skydiver in Lake Tahoe and its shoreline. Search crews include the US Coastguard, El Dorado County Sheriff, Douglas County fire and rescue personnel, CALSTAR and Douglas county helicopters, as well as all available boats in the area.
The other two skydivers have refused to comment on the incident to the press.
We very much hope that this skydiver is found alive and well.
As details become available we will report them.
