FORT LEE, VA (WWBT) - The Army says several safety lapses led to the death of a Fort Lee soldier during a parachute training jump last year.
A 214-page report says the jump was made during high winds; the power lines should have been shut off; and equipment wasn't available to communicate with jumpers.
Private Anthony Milo parachuted into power lines. An autopsy concluded the 24-year-old was electrocuted.
The report also says some jumpers did not attend a required safety briefing.
