LAUREL, Del. (AP) — Delaware State Police say two people have been injured while skydiving at the Laurel Airport.

Authorities say the men’s parachutes became entangled as they were skydiving together over the airport Sunday afternoon. Police say one parachute didn’t fully deploy and the men improperly landed together.

A 69-year-old Laurel man was being treated for non-life-threatening injuries, while the 52-year-old Beltsville, Md., man he was with was treated for minor injuries and has been released from the hospital.
