PERRIS, Calif. (AP) — A 29-year-old man has died in a Southern California skydiving accident.

The Riverside County Sheriff's Department said in a statement that police in the city of Perris responded to reports of an air emergency at Perris Valley airport Friday and arrived to find the man who had been hurt in a parachuting accident.

Paramedics took the man to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The man's identity and further details on the accident have not been released.

After a rash of major accidents in 2011 and 2012, it has been a mostly quiet year for skydiving injuries in Perris, a national mecca for the sport about 75 miles southeast of Los Angeles.

A U.S. Marine died in an accident near the same airport in February.
