MULBERRY, FLORIDA – In a near miracle, a skydiver and plane collided but neither the 87-year-old pilot or 49-year-old skydiver seriously hurt.
Shannon Trembley was flying maneuvers when the wing of his Cessna 150 got tangled with the strings of John Frost’s parachute causing the plane to crash. Amazingly, both the pilot and jumper were hospitalized with just minor injuries.
The crash is under investigation by the authorities.
