Two skydivers collided Saturday over Long Island, New York, rendering one unconscious and grateful for an automatically activated reserve parachute.
Patricia Baronowski, 46, took a knee to the head from fellow skydiver Kevin Arcamona, 29, during their free fall over Calverton, Riverhead police said.
Baronowski, of East Farmingdale, was knocked unconscious and descended into a tree after her reserve parachute opened. She was suspended about 15 feet from the ground until retrieved and taken to Stony Brook University Hospital, where she was treated for a head injury.
Arcamona, of Island Park, was taken to the same hospital with a leg injury, police said.
The accident occurred at about 12:30 p.m.
