DELAND, Fla. (WFLA) – A skydiver was injured after making a hard landing in DeLand in Volusia County on Wednesday.

Authorities say a Navy serviceman was hospitalized in stable condition after being injured during a training exercise.

City spokesman Chris Graham said the man told police he didn’t remember anything between hitting his head on the plane when he jumped and waking up on the ground.

Police were called to DeLand Municipal Airport at about 11:30 a.m.

The 35-year-old skydiver landed northwest of the airport after being forced to deploy the reserve parachute, authorities said.MORE TOP STORIES:
