John Scott died doing what he loved — skydiving. You’re not going to find many people more experienced than he was. Scott had 30 years of experience, more than 9,000 successful jumps under his belt, and was a skydiving and parachute instructor for both civilian and military clientele in Alberta, Canada. He was a former commander of the Canadian Forces Parachute Team, and an alumnus of the Canadian National Parachute Team.
It just goes to show that you never know when your number might come up. Scott was doing his last jump of the day, this one just for fun, when the landing went wrong and he hit the ground too fast and too hard. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.
