Incident occurred May 29, 2022 near Danielson Airport (KLZD), Killingly, Windham County, Connecticut

KILLINGLY, Connecticut — A skydiver was injured Sunday during an incident near the Danielson Airport, officials said.

Emergency crews responded to the single-runway airport around 3:30 p.m., according to local dispatchers. The severity of the skydiver’s injuries was not immediately clear.

The airport is home to Skydive Danielson, a popular skydiving center that offers free falls from as high as 14,000 feet. A representative for the company declined to comment.

Alisa Sisic, a spokesperson for the Connecticut Airport Authority, said the incident did not disrupt flight operations at the 60-year-old general aviation airport.

The 257-acre facility is the smallest of the state’s six publicly owned airports and largely serves recreational pilots and local aviation businesses, according to the airport authority.
