Parachute under investigation after soldier dies

Fort Bragg, N.C. -- The parachute used in an Army training exercise in which a local soldier died had been under scrutiny in the past.

The Army had suspended use of the parachute after a separate deadly training exercise at Fort Bragg in 2011. The Army later lifted the suspension after determining the parachute was safe.

Sgt. Shaina Schmigel, 21, of Medina, died Friday during a paratrooper exercise.

It remains unclear whether the parachute actually caused her death. The investigation is ongoing.
