Paige sets a date for leap in Kyle’s memory

Have your say

A Sheffield teenager who plans to plummet thousands of feet in a skydive to remember her best friend has set a date for the daring leap.

Paige Salt, aged 18, from Lodge Moor, will be jumping from a plane at Brigg in Lincolnshire on September 8 at 8am.

The former Sheffield City College student, who is currently volunteering in a charity shop, is organising the event in memory of 18-year-old Kyle Hancock.

Kyle, a sports-mad Owls fan from Bradwell in the Peak District, died of sudden arrythmic death syndrome - known as SADs - in his university halls of residence in Surrey.

Proceeds from the skydive will go to Cardiac Risk In The Young. Visit to sponsor or log on to for information.
