Two tandem skydivers, including a female student making her first jump, died Saturday after their parachute failed. The student--and a male instructor with 2,000 jumps to his record--were killed when the main chute didn't open correctly and the reserve parachute tangled in the main chute, Yolo County sheriff's spokeswoman Laura Landeros said. Witnesses said they heard the woman yelling for help and felt the impact about two football fields away.
