  • Two men were injured June 16 while skydiving at the Laurel Airport.
    According to the Delaware State Police, a 69-year-old Laurel man and a 52-year-old Beltsville, Md. man were skydiving together above the airport around 1:30 p.m. when their parachutes became entangled. Police said this prevented one parachute from fully deploying, causing the men to improperly land together.
    Police said the Laurel man was transported by DSP helicopter to Christiana Hospital where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries. The Beltsville man was transported by ambulance to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, Md. where he was treated for minor injuries and released.
    Police did not release the names of these men.
