Two men died Saturday in a tandem jump gone wrong in northern California, authorities said.

Officers found their bodies in a field near the Skydive Lodi Parachute Center in Acampo after they hit the ground, the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement. The parachute did not appear to deploy until after impact.

Both victims were men in their 20s, and one was an instructor, according to Deputy Les Garcia. He did not release the names because family members have not yet been notified.

“The parachute failed to eject properly. We have no explanation why,” Bill Dause, owner of the Parachute Center, told KCRA-TV. “The only thing it looks like is something may have gone out of sequence (and) that may have caused the problem.”

Deputies received a 911 call around 10 a.m. from someone reporting a skydiver hit the ground without an open parachute, according to the statement.

The Parachute Center, which opened in 1964, is based in one of the largest drop zones in the U.S., according to the business’s website.

Another skydiver died at the Parachute Center in February. A solo skydiver died after a parachute malfunction, the Lodi News-Sentinel reported.

The Federal Aviation Administration will investigate the cause of death.
