Parachutist hits house

An unidentified man was taken to hospital Monday afternoon after a parachute jump went wrong.

The man was apparently scheduled to land at the Vernon airport. However he missed his mark and hit a house.

RCMP spokesman, Gord Molendyk, says the man apparently hit the side of a house somewhere south of the airport.

Emergency crews responded and transported the man to hospital.

The extent of his injuries are not known.

More details to come when they become available.
