The woman, believed to be aged in her late 20s, was treated by paramedics for back and pelvic pain. 

She was expected to be taken to Liverpool Hospital.

Sydney Skydivers director Phil Onis said the accident involved an experienced jumper who “had a hard landing”.

“She’s got a sore back so they’ve just taken her to the hospital as a precaution, but she’s all OK,” Mr Onis said.
