Skydiver who died at Harvey Field identified as Kirkland man
The 27-year-old man who died following a skydiving accident on May 31 in Snohomish has been identified as Glen Leland Hobbs, Jr. of Kirkland.
The Snohomish County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed the man's cause of death was “intracranial hemorrhage with pelvic and extremity fractures due to blunt impact to the head and extremities.”
Hobbs was skydiving with a group of people, but it is unclear if he was part of a group that hired out a company to coordinate the dive, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office.
Witnesses said the victim deployed his parachute, but came in too fast when he landed. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after emergency aid responded.
