Gainesville skydiver John Frost's made his descent near Tampa, Fla.
A plane approached as Frost prepared to land.
The plane became entangled in the strings of the skydiver's parachute.
The collision sent both pilot and skydiver crashing into the ground.
Both the pilot and jumper were hospitalized with minor injuries.
Polk County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Carrie Eleazer says 87-year-old pilot Shannon Trembley was doing takeoff and landing maneuvers Saturday in his Cessna at the South Lakeland Airport in Mulberry.
On his third landing pass, the wing of his plane became entangled in the strings of 49-year-old Gainesville skydiver John Frost's parachute.
Trembley's plane nose-dived to the surface.
Frost was flung to the ground.
Eleazer says neither sustained serious injury, but went to the hospital.
Frost was treated and released. Trembley was held for observation.
The National Transportation Safety Board and FAA are investigating. — The Associated Press
