The Federal Aviation Administration and local authorities are probing the deaths of two skydivers yesterday evening. The instructor and student, both adult males, were found next to a garage across the street from the Cape Cod Airfield, reports NECN. "We responded to the scene and we observed two people—the instructor and the student— laying on the ground beside the garage," a police spokesman tells CBS. "It appears they did hit the garage." The pair were jumping in tandem, and it's not clear whether there was an equipment malfunction. (More skydiving stories.)
