Skydiver ‘sabotaged’ love rival’s chute

`A skydiver sabotaged a fellow jumper’s parachute after finding out that the woman was having an affair with her boyfriend, police say.

Els Van Doran, 37, fell 4000 feet to her death during a dive over an airfield in Zwarteberg, Belgium, on November 18 last year.

Van Doran, a married mother, had been taking part in a group jump with friend Els Clootemans, Clootemans’s Dutch boyfriend Marcel and a fourth parachutist.

The four linked hands in a star formation, but neither of Van Doran’s parachutes would open.

Her death plunge was captured on a camera fitted to her helmet. She fell into a garden and died instantly.’
