A skydiving accident at the Perkiomen Valley Airport in Skippack Township Sunday afternoon sent an instructor and his student to the hospital.

The man and woman, both in their late 40s, landed "hard" around 2 p.m. and were taken to Paoli Hospital — one by helicopter and one by ambulance, according to a police spokesman.

A person who answered the phone at Keystone Skydive Center who identified himself as the owner said at 5 p.m. he had just received a call from the hospital saying "they are going to be fine." The owner said he was still trying to determine what happened but said the pair were hooked together on a single parachute and had a "landing problem."
