Army Investigates Va. Parachute Death

July 9, 2010

A team of Army investigators is inspecting a parachute jump training site at Fort Lee where a 24-year-old private was killed during a practice jump.

Pvt. Anthony R. Milo died in March when the Colorado native became tangled in power lines after jumping from a Black Hawk helicopter.

The Petersburg-area base suspended training at the drop zone after the death and shifted its activities to Fort Pickett. Fort Lee officials and a team from Fort Benning, Ga., are evaluating the site.
