SAN DIEGO -- A skydiver fell to his death Sunday afternoon after an accident in the air with another skydiver, the San Diego County Sheriff's Department said.

The skydiver, described only as a man in his 20s, was found in the Otay Lakes area near Jamul about 4 p.m.

His skydiving partner landed safely.

The two bumped each other during the dive, causing one skydiver's parachute to malfunction, officials said.
