A 70-year-old skydiver was killed when his parachute got tangled with another man's and he fell to the ground, police said.

Theodore Wilson, of New Rochelle, N.Y., and 75-year-old George Flynn, of Colonia, N.J., tumbled about 75 feet after their midair collision Saturday in the Pocono Mountains.

Wilson was killed. Flynn was listed in critical condition at Lehigh Valley Hospital.

The men had jumped at Sky's the Limit Skydiving at the Stroudsburg-Pocono Airport, about 70 miles north of Philadelphia.

The Pocono Record reported that Wilson may have suffered a heart attack.

Foul play is not suspected, according to the newspaper.
