Skydiving Crash Leaves 2 Hurt

Men injured after jumps miss the mark -- land in trees

Things went wrong for a pair of skydivers in South Jersey Friday night.

Two seperate jumpers were hurt after their chutes became entangled in some trees around 8:30 in Williamstown.

It all happened at Freefall Adventures -- the same skydiving facility where a Delaware County mayor fell to his death about three months ago.

The men landed at 222 Hewitt Street -- a couple hundred feet from the airstrip. After crashing into the trees they had a rough landing on the ground, cops said.
