Three people have been killed following a skydiving accident in Australia

It is the site of Australia's highest commercially available tandem dives, taking place from around 15,000 feet.

Mission Beach is near Cairns in Northern Queensland and is a popular tourist destination for skydivers and this is the worst accident in the history of the area.

An eyewitness told The Cairns Post that he could see that one chute was tangled and it wasn't opening.

'I was just watching him in free fall until he went behind the trees, and that was the last I saw'.

The body of a skydiver has been found in a residential yard in far north Queensland, with two more bodies found nearby after a mid-air collision caused their parachutes to fail.

In a statement issued this evening, Skydive Australia said it had suspended operations at Mission Beach following the tragedy.
