A pilot and jumper escaped with minor injuries after a plane became entangled in the strings of a skydiver's parachute, sending both crashing into the ground near Tampa, Florida.

Pilot Shannon Trembley, 87, was doing takeoff and landing manoeuvres when the plane was caught in skydiver John Frost's parachute.
