Woman crashes into ground, breaks legs after participating in record-breaking skydive formation in Vinemont, Alabama

VINEMONT, Alabama - A 25-year-old Texas woman broke both her legs when she crashed into the ground after skydiving in Vinemont on Friday.

The woman, whose name has not been released, lost consciousness and was flown to Huntsville Hospital for treatment, according to the Cullman Times.

She was among 47 skydivers who broke the state record for the largest skydive formation. Witnesses told officials that after the skydivers separated to perform individual landings, the woman made a low turn and slammed into the ground.

Paul Rossouw, the owner and operator of Skydive Alabama, told the Times that the woman is an experienced skydiver, and the crash was caused by an error in judgment.
