LEBANON, Maine (AP) — Authorities say a Massachusetts man was seriously injured after a skydiving accident in southern Maine.

Rescue crews say 32-year-old man made a “hard landing” Friday afternoon in Lebanon. He was taken by helicopter to Maine Medical Center.

Officials told Foster’s Daily Democrat newspaper that the man’s injuries are not life-threatening and that he’s expected to make a full recovery.

The Lebanon Rescue Department says he was an experienced skydiver.
