The Navy said Monday the weekend death of a member of its skydiving team was because of “an equipment malfunction, though the specific nature and cause is currently unknown.”

The team, known as the Leap Frogs were conducting a coordinated jump into Liberty State Park in Jersey City, N.J., as part of planned Fleet Week.
