WHITE MARSH, Md. (AP) - Maryland authorities say an Oregon man was injured after he jumped from a construction site crane and his parachute failed to fully deploy.

Baltimore County police said in a statement Wednesday that police and fire personnel were called Monday to a construction site in White Marsh for a report of an injured person and found 33-year-old David Mazik of King City, Oregon.

Police say Mazik, who worked for the construction company, had two cameras on his helmet when he jumped from a 160-foot crane, but his parachute didn’t fully deploy. He landed on a steel box and was injured.

Mazik was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. Officials say he is in fair condition. Police say the crane is at the construction site of an iFLY Indoor Skydiving facility.
