    One person was hurt after two parachuters landed in residential neighborhood in South Jersey Thursday.

    Emergency crews rushed to the 1800 block of Glassboro Cross Keys Road in Sewell, Gloucester County where the two jumpers set down in a yard around 4:45 p.m.

    One of the two parachuters, a 60-year-old Delaware man, had a hard landing even though his parachute deployed, according to authorities.

    He suffered a fractured ankle, officials said.

    The accident occurred just north of Free Fall Adventures, where the pair was supposed to land.
