Authorities said Lake Elsinore police officers responded to the backyard of a home where they found the fallen skydiver, identified as Ken Oka of Mira Loma, reports U-T San Diego.
An investigation found that a group of skydivers were trying a multiple person maneuver when Oka became entangled in a parachute, according to a news release.
Oka was apparently unable to free himself and fell to the ground. He was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead a short time later.
Police said the Federal Aviation Administration is conducting an independent investigation.
