TAMPA, Fla. – A military skydiver is said to be in "very critical condition" after being found unconscious in a Tampa-area lake.
Tampa Fire Rescue says they received a call at 9:26 a.m. Thursday reporting the skydiver down. Two witnesses fishing in the lake say they saw the skydiver clear a power line, land in the lake, and then disappear underwater.
The witnesses tried to find the man, and their canoe flipped over in the process, but they were unsuccessful.
Rescuers eventually found the man and pulled him to shore. He remains hospitalized at Tampa General Hospital.
The man's identity hasn't been released. He was stationed at MacDill Air Force Base.
