A German woman who was part of a 222-person team participating in a group jump died when her main parachute did not open.

Police have confirmed Diana Paris, 46, of Berlin, was killed Thursday morning in Arizona.

Paris, who has had over 1,500 jumps Paris was taking part in a world-record attempt for most skydivers changing from one formation to another in a one jump.

Her main parachute was released too low to the ground for the reserve chute to work.

The group will now attempt a jump with 221 people.
