VIDEO: Skydiver and plane collide midair; diver and pilot both survive

MULBERRY, Fla. – A parachuting skydiver came face to face with a small plane over the weekend sending both crashing to the ground in Florida.

Amazingly, both men survived the accident and a photographer caught the whole thing on camera.

You can see skydiver John Frost’s parachute open and him making his approach to the ground.

But soon, a small Cessna plane becomes entangled in the strings of his parachute about 75 feet above the ground.

Frost was thrown to the ground and the plane took a nose-dive.

The pilot of the plane was doing takeoff and landing maneuvers at the South Lakeland Airport when the accident happened.

Both men suffered only minor injuries.
