LODI, Calif. - A Lodi skydiver died on Sunday after her parachute failed to deploy.

The incident happened at the Lodi Parachute Center in San Joaquin County. 

The Federal Aviation Commission said that the woman was using her own equipment. However, this death is the latest in a string of accidents and violations at the center. 

In September of 2016, 20 instructors were suspended after an investigation was done by the United States Parachute Association. 

Since 1999, 16 people have died skydiving at the Lodi Parachute Center.
