Man injured in skydiving accident

SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, Pa (WKBN) — A man was flown to a Pittsburgh hospital after a skydiving accident Saturday evening, just outside Grove City.

It happened a little after 7 p.m. in Springfield Township, near the Grove City Airport.

The owner of Skydive Pennsylvania Skydiving Center said that the man was jumping alone, not in tandem. His parachute did open, weather and equipment appear to have nothing to do with the accident.

The man missed his designated landing zone, and hit the ground hard in a field off Old Ash Road.

His injuries are believed to be non life-threatening.
