Skydiver breaks leg

By adminon - Read 1080 times

A skydiver was in Perth Royal Infirmary last night after badly breaking a leg while at Strathallan airfield in Perthshire.

It is believed the man, who has not yet been named, landed awkwardly at the end of an otherwise uneventful 2,000ft dive.

The latest accident comes less than a month after Craig Paton fell hundreds of feet when his jump went wrong. He suffered serious internal injuries.

Mr Paton, from Kilmarnock, was badly hurt because the canopy of his parachute failed to open and he hit the ground at over 40 miles per hour.

He has since been discharged from hospital.
