Fatality: Dutch marine making military jump in Arizona?
Dutch internetsites, among them the official site of the dutch department of defense, report a parachuting fatality that happened to an officer of the royal dutch marines during a (miltary?) freefall training jump in Phoenix Arizona. As usual details are sketchy. ("parachute didn't open fully") Anybody local in the know, who can fill us in?

That information is correct. There was an accident followed by the death of the military jumper 2 weeks later. Specific details on the accident will not be released due to it being a military operation.
