Two men were hurt Saturday morning when a plane collided with the parachute of a skydiver in Mulberry.

The Polk County Sheriff's Office says the pilot, 87-year-old Sharon Trembley, a World War II veteran, was doing touch-and-goes in his private Cessna at the South Lakeland Airport; that's when a plane touches down briefly then takes off again.

During his third pass, the passenger side wing of his plane clipped a skydiver's parachute, cutting the chute and tossing the skydiver into the air about 75-feet above the ground.

The skydiver, 49-year-old John Frost of Gainesville, was flung to the earth. The plane nose-dived into the ground.

Yea it came up. I believe there has been another similar incident within the last year.

This is one of the more sad murder stories that I've read coming out of Florida. I cant remember how I heard about it a few years ago, but imagine if you and your friends were all bludgeoned to death because you evicted squatters from your grandparent's winter home that you were using for the summer.
