Jumping from a plane Tuesday morning about 10am, dispatchers on the ground desperately tried reaching crew, urging them to stop Vitantonio.

Vitantonio's wife, Costanza Zitellini, 25, ran into Skydive Deland, where her husband was doing the jump, and asked an employee to stop her husband immediately, according to reports.

The wife explained she'd just received a video from Vitantonio, saying her husband was 'not going to pull the cord and that he was going somewhere wonderful'.

Capotorto Vitantonio then plunged to his death at Sky Dive DeLand in Florida.

The employee radioed up to the plane, but it was too late.

DeLand police said an officer was called to Skydive DeLand and was told that Capotorto, an experienced skydiver, jumped from a plane and did not deploy his parachute.

Police later found his body face down in a nearby field.

Authorities state that Vitantonio, an Italian national who worked for United Parachute Technologies, plummeted 13,500 feet to his death.

A skydiver who plummeted to his death on Tuesday reportedly didn't pull the parachute cord on objective. He was found facedown in a field near Skydive DeLand, one of the busiest skydiving hubs in the country.

Vitantonio and his wife lived in DeLand.

A manager at the company said that they have the best aircraft in the nation and noted that "when a person steps out the door, they are responsible for themselves". Image via Facebook.Pictured Deland, Florida skydiver, Capotorto Vitantonio.
