Plane and skydiver collision in Central Florida

Photos capture the moment a plane and skydiver collide in Central Florida.

A sky diver - moments from landing - got clipped by a small plane in Mulberry over the weekend.
   
In a series of photos you can see the plane's wing becomes entangled in the strings of John Frost's parachute about 75 off the ground tossing the 49-year-old skydiver in the air.
   
The- plane traveling roughly 60 miles per hour lost control and nose-dived to the surface.

"The plane caught the side of the canopy and spun the airplane completely 180 degrees, flipped the sky diver up into the air, you heard the airplane and the airplane impacted the parachute which sounded like you falling face first into your pillow."

Miraculously both men walked away from the scene with minor injuries.
Both the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration are now investigating this mid-air scare.
