    A 75-year-old New Jersey man and a 70-year-old New York man died from injuries sustained in a skydiving accident on the Poconos Saturday.

    George Flynn, 75, of Colonia, N.J., died Sunday, a day after he tumbled to the ground when he and another jumper got their parachutes tangled, according to the Lehigh County Coroner's Office.

    Flynn and 70-year-old Theodore Wilson of New Rochelle, N.Y., had jumped at Sky's the Limit Skydiving near the Stroudsburg-Pocono Airport in Monroe County when they collided and became tangled about 75 feet from the ground.

    Authorities say Flynn died of multiple blunt force trauma. His death was ruled an accident.

    Wilson was pronounced dead Saturday at Pocono Medical Center.
