Spinal injury - landing - SkyKnights? Can't Post

I heard (from an eyewitness) that an instructor at East Troy had a swooping accident and was taken away in an ambulance with spinal injuries weekend of 17/18 Nov.

Any details?

Hi Doc-

What you heard is correct. Low turn followed by ambulance ride to the hospital. I haven't really made a point to ask any specific questions about the injuries as I am to understand he should recover.

Thanks for the confirmation. I hope the jumper heals fast.

Any more details about why it may have happened?

Yeah np, and me too.

I haven't heard the story straight from him, so I don't really want to try and make up specifics. I have some of my own opinions, but those aren't super relevant at this point.
