Skydiver hurt in Waterville
An experienced skydiver was injured after a "hard landing" at a flight school in Waterville, N.S., on Saturday.
The accident happened at the airport in Waterville just after 12:30 p.m.
David Williamson, owner of the Atlantic School of Skydiving, said the 50-year-old man from Truro is an experienced recreational skydiver who has jumped there before.
Williamson said the skydiver said he misjudged his landing and came in too fast.
"He was conscious and talking and apologetic for creating a disturbance," Williamson said. "He was sore. He had landed fairly briskly on his behind. So I suspect a lower back injury of some degree."
All jumps were cancelled for a time, but they resumed later in the day.
The man was taken by helicopter to hospital in Halifax as a precaution.
RCMP Cpl. Angela Corscadden said Mounties aren't expected to investigate.
"There doesn't appear to be anything suspicious, just an unfortunate hard landing," she said.
