Skydive Sebastian has a drop zone near the campground, but the man missed his target and ended up in the wood area across the road.

Last month, one skydiver landed at Riverview Park in Sebastian, missing her target from several miles away. On the same day, another skydiver landed near the Sebastian Post Office.
