According to reports, the man fell from a biplane during a maneuver near Topp of Tampa Airport in Land O' Lakes on Saturday, Oct. 19, 2013.
Pasco County, Florida -- The Pasco County Sheriff's Office is investigating the death of a wing walker in Wesley Chapel.
According to reports, 62-year-old Mark Curto fell from a biplane during a maneuver near Tampa North Flight Center in Lutz on Saturday. His parachute did not deploy.
"Surreal is what it was to see somebody fall off the plane and actually have it be a human body," said witness Toby Fallis.
Curto landed in the backyard of a home on McBrine Ct. in the Grand Oaks subdivision in Land O Lakes. He died at the scene.
"You had children playing in their front yards. Kids could see the planes from their front yard. This is something people could see in various parts of the community," said Pasco Co. Sheriff's Office spokesperson Melanie Snow.
After Curto fell from the plane, the pilot circled the location and then returned to the airport.
Pasco County Sheriff's investigators are calling the fall an accident.
The Federal Aviation Administration has been brought in to investigate.
