2 injured in separate skydiving mishaps on North Shore

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

A 26-year-old man was transported to a trauma center in serious condition Saturday after being injured while skydiving on the North Shore, Emergency Medical Services said. 

The man is a visitor and was flying alone, a Honolulu Fire Department spokesman said. His parachute became tangled as he approached for his landing around 1:15 p.m., and he went slightly off course, landing in the Camp Mokuleia area, the spokesman said. 

The diver told emergency responders that he hit a few Ironwood trees on his way down and complained of pain in his left thigh before being treated and transported by EMS.

In a separate incident, a 40-year-old woman was seriously injured when she collided with another skydiver about 3 p.m., also on Oahu’s North Shore. 

EMS said the woman was transported to a trauma center, and the second diver was not injured.
