Offbeat Video

This skydiver had a car crash landing – swooping into parked vehicles as he attempted a landing.

Footage of the incident shows hundreds of people watching the jumpers at July 4 celebrations.

In the video little kids can be heard shouting “that’s so cool” as the skydivers swoop down from the sky.

The first jumper has a smooth landing on the grass, and the second stumbles and rolls forward as he hits the ground.

The third skydiver, who has a large parachute decorated with an American flag and is trailing the Indiana state flag, descends too quickly and flies straight into a row of parked cars.

Spectators rush to the vehicles to check the jumper is ok and soon afterwards a golf caddy with flashing lights arrives to transport him away.

He reportedly suffered a broken leg in the incident.

Amanda Spears, 33, was at the festivities in Mooresville, Indiana and caught the crash landing on film.

The mum-of-two said: “I was shocked. I felt like something was off when he was getting closer to the target and then turned away from it.

“When he turned around to head back to the target, he dropped pretty quickly. It made my stomach turn.

“It was very emotional. I thought for sure that he went through the windshield of the van from where I was. The sound of the impact was very loud and very hard.

“I was so relieved to hear that as far as I know it was only his leg that was broken.

“My stomach was in knots for the rest of the night. It could have been so much worse and I’m so thankful that it was not.

“There were hundreds of people there. It was so shocking.”
