JAMUL, Calif. – A woman skydiver was seriously injured in an accident Sunday, a CalFire spokesman said.

The incident occurred at 2:25 p.m., when “a female skydiver made a hard landing” at a skydiving center near Otay Lakes, east of Chula Vista, Cal Fire PIO Capt. Kendal Bortisser said.

The skydiver was described as “injured and unresponsive,” Bortisser said. The woman was taken to Mercy Hospital.

Bortisser said the victim was a client at Skydive San Diego, 13531 Otay Lakes Road, in Jamul.

Its website describes it 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.
