A female skydiver was seriously injured in an accident on Sunday afternoon when she landed near Jamul.
The incident occurred at 2:25 p.m., when the skydiver made a hard landing at a skydiving center east of Chula Vista, Cal Fire PIO Capt. Kendal Bortisser said.
The skydiver was described as “injured and unresponsive,” Bortisser said. “An air ambulance has been requested from Gillespie Field.”
Bortisser said the victim was a client of Skydive San Diego, located at 13531 Otay Lakes Road in Jamul.
Its website describes the business as a full-service skydiving facility with planes holding 18 to 23 jumpers.
Skydive planes depart from Brown Field, fly over Imperial Beach and downtown San Diego before clients jump, according to the company’s website.
