WHITEWRIGHT, TX -- Skydive Dallas in Whitewright says the jumper who was injured in a skydiving accident Saturday afternoon has been released from the hospital and is in good condition.

He reportedly suffered some bruising and a minor fracture after falling about 75 feet.

We are told his parachute was fully deployed, but he encountered some turbulence that twisted his lines and he performed an emergency landing.

His name has not been released, but Skydive Dallas says he is an experienced gold medal jumper.
