Officials at Fort Lee are suspending parachute training while authorities investigate conditions which led to a soldier's death.
Pvt. Anthony Milo of Colorado Springs, Colo., died after becoming tangled in a power line near the base's landing zone. Army officials have not released the exact cause of death.
The 24-year-old solider had parachuted from a Blackhawk helocopter during training with 45 other members of the 23rd Quartermaster Brigade.
A spokesperson for the base says investigators are considering whether wind speed played a role in the accident.
Jump training is supposed to be canceled when winds reach 10 knots, or 11.5 mph. The National Weather Service says winds during that jump measured 15 mph, with gusts up to 25 mph.
Officials at the base say this was the first fatal parachuting accident in the history of Fort Lee.
