Two paratroopers crashed at Teuge Airport

At airport Teuge, near Apeldoorn, two paratroopers crashed. One of the two has been seriously injured. The victim was taken to the hospital in a trauma helicopter. The other paratrooper was transported to the hospital by ambulance.

The accident happened this afternoon around 3:30 p.m., reports Omroep Gelderland. The police treats the cases as two separate incidents, because the two did not make a duo-jump, but jumped down separately from each other.

We’re investigating exactly what happened. It is not yet known if the two jumped out of the same plane, let a spokesman of the police know.
