The Australian Parachute Federation has sent an investigator from Melbourne to try and figure out exactly what had gone wrong.

The 36-year-old was an experienced skydiver, having completed at least 600 jumps.

He is being remembered as a man that lived a life of adventure.

Mr Rochecouste’s partner took to social media to share her devastation, saying “his life was cut short but I can assure you it was packed full of the best experiences. He was the most loving and adoring father”.
