Skydiving Incident On North Shore

By : Diane Ako

NORTH SHORE (KHNL)- A Pacific Skydiving Center student making his first solo skydiving jump gets way more than he bargained for. A teacher and his student Shawn Lym went up to make a jump, when the student's parachute malfunctioned and he landed in the water. Lym says, "I went into the water, had a little line twist, and you know, tried to work it out, but it slowed me down enough to go into the water real nice and soft. The instructor came out to strip my gear and we swam in." Lym says he was unshaken by the experience and even went for another dive after that!
