MULBERRY, Fla. - A pilot and a parachutist both survived what could have been a deadly collision this weekend in Polk County, Florida.

A Cessna was doing 'touch and goes' Saturday when it got caught in a parachute.

The plane cut the cords and the skydiver was thrown to the ground from 75 feet in the air and the Cessna nose dives.

Amazingly, neither the pilot nor the skydiver were seriously injured.

The NTSB and FAA were both notified and went to the accident scene.
