In their own online statement, the police department said they were “investigating a fatal skydiving incident in the town of Innisfil.” They said: “A woman was critically injured after jumping from a plane operated by a local skydiving club. She was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead.”
E! News has reached out to the Police Department and Skydive Toronto, both of which have not included names in their statements.
Ozgoli told CTV News Toronto that Pardazi “had an interest in everything new and adventurous. Life was too boring for her and she was always trying to do something adventurous.” She added that her friend “really lived every second to the fullest. This is the biggest shock for us. It’s very difficult to process. It’s been a few days but we still don’t even believe it.”
Kimia Sepanlou, another friend of Pardazi, paid tribute to the late star on Instagram. “I’m at a loss for words (ironic because you were always good at putting what I was thinking into words), but I’ll do my best to contribute,” she wrote. “I’m pissed off. mad at you for leaving me with no one to randomly call and talk to about my crazy coincidences, but also mad at the world for taking someone as intelligent and kind as you from us.”
She continued, “I’m heartbroken because we never got to go on our Bali trip together as we’d always discussed, but also knowing with an uncanny ease that you’ve finally gotten your answer on how to live after.” looks like death. You were one in a million and went out like one in a million. You have been loved by many. You will be missed by many. Wait for me on the other side.”
Pardazi was also mourned online by fans and the University of Toronto’s Scarborough cheerleading team.
“Forever part of our team and in our hearts,” read a post on her Instagram page. “Tanya Pardazi was one in a million.”
