What was supposed to be a day of skydiving turned tragic on Saturday.

FAA spokesman Lynn Lunsford says witnesses reported seeing the Cessna 182 take off about 2:30 p.m. Saturday from LeGros Memorial Airport in Acadia Parish.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of those who lost their lives.
