Skydiving Tragedy in New Jersey

Skydiving Tragedy in New Jersey
BY BERNIE WEISENFELD
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

A 49-year-old Brooklyn NY man died yesterday afternoon while skydiving in Monroe Township, N.J.

Arkady Shenker, 49, was skydiving from Freefall Adventures in Monroe. He wore a specialized parachute known as a "wing suit," which allows a skydiver to move forward while descending. It is unclear whether the suit opened properly. Its functionality will be investigated by federal authorities.

Mr. Shenker landed behind a yard in the 100 block of Tuckahoe Rd., Sewell. He jumped from an airplane at about 2 p.m. and was pronounced dead at 3:38 p.m. at Kennedy Hospital, Washington Township NJ.
