WHITEWRIGHT, Tex. -- A skydiver was all tangled up in power lines in Whitewright Saturday afternoon.

It happened just after four o’clock on Highway 11. The diver was dangling 15 feet into the air. A passerby actually saw him and called for help. Crews from Whitewright, Trenton, and Sherman all assisted.

Officials say the skydiver seemed to be fine, but may have suffered an electrical shock. He was taken by Lifestar, as a precaution, to Parkland Hospital in Dallas.

    Seemed to be "fine" after an electrical shock and Lifestar transferred to him to Parkland??? Doesn't sound fine to me....
