A tragic skydiver contacted his wife minutes before jumping from a plane to tell her he was not going to release the cord.

Vitantonio's wife, Costanza Zitellini, 25, ran into Skydive Deland, where her husband was doing the jump, and asked an employee to stop her husband immediately, according to reports. It was too late.

By the time the ground staff had radioed the pilot, he had already jumped.

The wife explained she'd just received a video from Vitantonio, saying her husband was 'not going to pull the cord and that he was going somewhere wonderful'.

Vitantonio, an Italian national, was found with his face down in a field southeast of the runways at DeLand Municipal Airport, according to The Daytona Beach News-Journal.

The Sky Dive DeLand employee told investigators that Vitantonio seemed "normal" before going up. Capotorto was 27 years old, and he and his wife worked in the parachute industry.

The News-Journal reported that this is the fifth death since 2013 at Skydive DeLand, which is "one of the busiest jump spots in the nation". According to his Facebook, he was employed by United Parachute Technologies, which makes cases for parachutes.

The general manager of the facility, Mike Johnston, said that Zitellini arrived just 'moments too late'.

'When a person steps out the door, they are responsible for themselves'.
