GULF COAST, Fla. (KXAN/NBC) — A man dressed in a Santa suit to go skydiving may want to stick to the sleigh after a major landing mishap in Florida.
The skydiver was delivering volleyballs to a tournament and also had a little girl’s “Elf On The Shelf” along for the ride, in what was supposed to be a fun arrival at the Gulf Coast beach over the weekend.
He came in to land, but clipped a tree, hit a beach volleyball net and landed hard on the court. People rushed to his aid. He broke his leg and had to get surgery but is expected to be OK.
