SN_PARACHUTIST_FOOTBALL_5.jpg
A parachutist smirks and bundles up his canopy before being escorted from a football pitch after accidentally landing in the middle of a match. The unnamed daredevil - who had jumped from a plane at 15,000 feet - lost his way after emerging from heavy low cloud. He was destined for Old Sarum Airfield in Salisbury, Wilts, but came down half a mile away at the Raymond McEnhill Stadium. The adrenaline-junkie was forced to divert to the stadium - packed with 925 fans - to avoid smashing into nearby buildings, fences, and cars. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
