Skydiver dies after legs severed during jump
Monday, April 25, 2005
Albert Wing III deployed his parachute and caught an updraft when the left wing of a DHC-6 Twin Otter propeller plane struck him. He managed to control his descent and land near the DeLand Airport, about 40 miles north of Orlando.
He was airlifted to a hospital where he later died. It was not known if he was filming at the time of the accident, and a camera has not been found.
The plane and the other sport jumpers landed safely.
