SEBASTIAN, Fla. — Authorities say a German tourist got stuck in a tree while skydiving in Florida.

Treasure Coast Newspapers reports that the 60-year-old man ended up in a 20-foot tree at Donald MacDonald Park Friday afternoon. The park is just west of a Skydive Sebastian drop zone and the Sebastian Municipal Airport.

The Indian River County Sheriff’s Office says the man was removed from the tree and taken to a nearby hospital. Officials say he sustained injuries to his face and head.
