Two Injured in Skydiving Accident at Laurel Airport

Posted: Updated:

LAUREL, Del.- Delaware State Police said two skydivers were injured Sunday afternoon while skydiving at the Laurel Airport, located at 32524 Aero Drive in Laurel.

According to police, the incident occurred at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, as a 69-year-old Laurel man and a 52-year-old Beltsville, Md., man were skydiving together over the airport. As they descended, police said their parachutes became entangled. According to police, this prevented one parachute from fully deploying, causing the parachutists to improperly land together.

Police said the 69-year-old male was transported to Christiana Hospital by Delaware State Police helicopter, where he is being treated for non-life-threatening injuries. The 52-year-old was transported by ambulance to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, where he was treated for minor injuries and released.
