Here in the states it's very common to have a paying pax on jump aircraft to observe the jump of a friend or family member.
On single engine aircraft I think a parachute is required but not on multi engine aircraft.

I did read that the child involved was the son of one of the jumpers, very sad indeed!

Seems the 'skydiver hitting the Stab' theory is out.
