Two skydivers hurt in separate parachute incidents in Perthshire
Two skydivers have escaped with minor injuries after separate parachute incidents in Perthshire.
An 18-year-old man was airlifted to hospital when his parachute failed to deploy fully in a jump at Strathallan Airfield, near Auchterarder.
A spokesman for Skydive Strathallan said he had since been released from hospital.
A 28-year-old woman is thought to have broken her ankle when her parachute failed to open at Errol Airfield.
In the incident at Strathallan, which happened at about 11:20, the teenager was left falling towards the ground at about 50mph when his chute only partially opened.
The Skydive Strathallan spokesman said: "His dad phoned earlier and in his own words, he doesn't have a scratch."
The woman involved in the incident at Errol Airfield, which happened about an hour later, was taken by ambulance to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee.
