Two skydivers died on Sunday after they crashed into a house garage in Massachusetts.

The incident happened at around 5:20 p.m. as a skydiving instructor and a student took part in a tandem skydive, the Boston Globe reported.

The pair was supposed to land in a designated landing area at the Cape Cod Airfield, but went off course and crashed into a nearby garage.

They were both declared dead at Cape Cod Hospital. Police did not revealed the identity of the victims.

According to the Boston Globe, it was not clear if an equipment malfunction was to blame.

“Unfortunately I don’t know what happened, but I heard a thud,” a person living close by quoted by CBS News saying. “The parachute looked deployed.”

An investigation is ongoing to determine the cause of the accident.
