(©divemasterking2000) (Newser) – A day in the Poconos turned deadly on Saturday for a 70-year-old skydiver who was killed after a midair collision. Theodore Wilson's parachute deployed but became tangled with that of a 75-year-old skydiver, who has been hospitalized in critical condition. The two fell about 75 feet to the ground, say police. Wilson may have suffered a heart attack, notes the Pocono Record.
