Hector, who lived in Buenos Aires, was killed instantly yesterday (Sunday, June 18) when he crashed into the ground, with paramedics called out to the scene of the tragedy a short while later.

Despite attending the scene at Lobos flying club, all paramedics could do was confirm Hector was killed on impact, with an autopsy now underway.

Members of the Lobos Prosecutor's Office, police force and the Lobos Rural Patrol Command were all seen attending the scene, TN reported.

Hector's body was sent to La Plata in Buenos Aires to continue the autopsy, which is part of an investigation into the death of the 61-year-old.

A final photo of the deceased was uploaded on June 4, and showed Hector performing a parachute jump with his pal just a few weeks before his tragic death.
