OTTAWA, Kan. (AP) - Franklin County authorities say a 54-year-old Wichita man died in skydiving accident.

The sheriff’s office says the body of Brad Giffin was discovered Saturday evening in a field about a mile where he was supposed to land outside of Ottawa.

Giffin was an experienced skydiver who had more than 500 jumps.

Firefighters from Lincoln-Ottawa-Harrison Fire Department and representatives from a skydiving company began searching for Giffin when he didn’t land in the designated drop zone.

The Federal Aviation Administration is helping with the investigation.
