Two men are in critical condition after an apparent parachute malfunction during a skydiving jump.

It happened Wednesday morning in Titusville. Part of the fall was captured on video.

Preliminary investigation shows it was a tandem jump, and there was an apparent parachute malfunction.

Police say the parachutists fell from the sky and struck a tree in the front yard of a home.

The plane had come from Dunn Airport.

The parachutists were transported to the hospital and remain in critical condition. No other injuries were reported in the incident.
