MULBERRY, FL – In a twist on Newton’s Law (Isaac, not Fig) what goes up must come down – oh and bring a plane down with it?

That’s the story in Mulberry, Florida, where a skydiver was just about to get his feet on the ground, still about 75 feet in the air when a Cessna – doing a trick called a ‘touch and go’ – touched the diver and down they both go!

The plane cut the skydiver’s cords. He was thrown to the ground while the Cessna took a nose dive. Amazingly, neither the pilot nor the skydiver landed in the hospital, both walked away.
