30 year old Erick J. Miller was with another person as they skydived over the town of Barre, about 30 miles west of Rochester. When his friend landed, there was no sign of Miller and a search began. Search parties discovered Miller in a field nearby. His main parachute was found nearby, but was not attached to him, and his backup parachute did not deploy automatically.

Erick Miller was tragically pronounced dead at the scene. The accident remains under investigation to determine why his parachute was not attached, and why his backup parachute did not deploy automatically.
