Real estate investor David Winoker died Friday in a bizarre skydiving accident while celebrating a friend’s 50th birthday at Skydive The Ranch in Gardiner, NY.
Skydiving instructor Alexander Chulsky, 25, of Brooklyn, was connected to Mr. Winoker during the jump when their parachute malfunctioned, Plattekill authorities told YNN Hudson Valley.
Those close to Mr. Winoker, president of Winoker Realty, told The Commercial Observer that Mr. Chulsky may have become incapacitated and unresponsive during the jump. That account could not be immediately confirmed.
A funeral service is currently being held Sunday morning at the Temple Shaaray Tefila in Mount Kisco, NY.
The Commercial Observer welcomes those who knew and worked with Mr. Winoker to leave their memories of the man in the comments section below:
