JOHNSON COUNTY, Ind. (Jan. 1, 2016) – A woman died after a Friday morning skydiving incident in Johnson County.
According to Johnson County Sheriff Doug Cox, the woman landed hard around 11:40 a.m. and went to Johnson Memorial Hospital.
The plane flew out of Franklin Flying Field, and the victim landed in a farm field to the south.
Teresa "Terrie" Woods, 54, of Martinsville was “in very bad shape” when she was being taken to the hospital, according to Cox. The Johnson County Coroner confirmed she later succumbed to her injuries.
Woods, an NICU nurse, was the third to jump from the plane. The other two skydivers were not injured. Fellow skydiver Dave Crocco said she was a "skilled skydiver who had jumped more than 1,000 times."
In May 2014, Donald Hauck died at Franklin Flying Field after performing a maneuver about 100 feet from the ground. Officials said his parachute did not recover and he took a hard landing. Witnesses attempted to help, but he was later pronounced dead at the scene.
