Student skydiver injured in rough landing flown to local hospital
SALADO, Texas (KWTX) - A student skydiver was flown to a local hospital Sunday after what one of the owners of Skydive Temple described Monday as a rough landing.
The Salado Volunteer Fire Department, in a social media post Sunday, described the incident as an “extreme fall.”
The woman, who was jumping solo, was downwind as she came in for a landing Sunday in the area of the 15000 Interstate 35 in Salado and came in a little fast and a little hard.
When fire crews arrived, they said the skydiver was lying face-down on the ground, conscious, breathing and complaining of back pain.
She was flown to Scott & White Medical Center in Temple.
