Three skydivers were killed in Australia on Friday after what authorities believe was a mid-air collision.

Police said they are looking into whether a solo skydiver collided with two tandem skydivers, preventing their parachutes from opening correctly. Two of the victims were 34 and 35-year-old males with professional skydiving experience, while the third victim was a 50-year-old female customer of Skydive Australia which operated the dive.

The area's local mayor, John Kremastos, told the ABC that the incident was "horrible news", saying: "Three people in one accident is very, very sad".
