Litellini had just received a video from him, saying he was "not going to pull the cord and that he was going somewhere wonderful", police said.

She ran into the skydiving center begging the employees to radio the plane to stop her husband.

Vitantonio's death is Skydive DeLand's fifth in four years, WKMG reported.

Vitantonio's wife tried to stop her husband from jumping.

According to the report, Capotorto Vitantonio, 27, died and was found facedown in a field near Skydive DeLand on Tuesday, after sending the message to his wife who attempted to reach the pilot of the plane before the jump.

The Sky Dive DeLand employee told investigators that Vitantonio seemed "normal" before going up.
