2 Hurt In Weekend Skydiving Accident

Joggie Botma

 

And this is why, after two jumps and a broken finger, I’m good with skydiving. 

Tandem instructor Scott Smith and his passenger/customer Georgi Reed were hurt Sunday in Granville after the parachute they were using got tangled around Smith’s arm, causing the two to corkscrew at around 6,000 feet. The backup chute also failed to open properly.

In what can be considered the best luck on the planet, Smith and Reed landed in a tree at Country Meadows Par 3 Golf Course where golfers called State Police.

Fortunately, the two are going to be ok. Smith was transported to Glens Falls hospital with rib and foot pain and Reed was taken to Saratoga hospital with shoulder pain.

Luuuuuucky!!!!
