State Police investigating local skydiving company
HASTINGS, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Michigan State Police are investigating a local skydiving company after a skydiving accident landed a woman in a tree.
It's the third skydiving incident involving Skydive Hastings in less than three months.
The most recent incident happened Sunday.
The woman said she couldn't control her main parachute so she deployed her reserve, but she was already coming down too fast.
She was stuck in a tree for about an hour.
The company says it never calls skydiving 'safe,' but does everything possible to make sure those that go up in their planes come down safely.
