CHICAGO (AP) – A spokeswoman for a U.S. Army parachute team says one of two parachutists injured during the Chicago Air & Water Show remains hospitalized in critical condition.
Donna Dixon is a spokeswoman for the Army Golden Knights parachute team. She tells the Chicago Tribune that one parachutist – a man in his late 20s – had surgery to relieve pressure in his brain caused by a head injury.
She says he was still critical condition Sunday. The man’s name hasn’t been released.
Authorities say the two collided while performing a stunt Saturday. Witnesses said at least one of the men clipped the top of a high-rise apartment building in the Gold Coast neighborhood.
The other man, a member of the Navy Leap Frogs, was treated for a broken leg.
