PERKASIE, Pa. (AP) - Authorities in suburban Philadelphia say two people have been injured in a skydiving accident.

Rescue crews in Bucks County were called to Guth Elementary School in Perkasie shortly around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.

County emergency officials say the two victims were injured while tandem skydiving out of the Pennridge Airport. The Federal Aviation Administration says their parachute apparently malfunctioned.

Additional details about the accident weren't immediately available.

Officials say one was flown to Lehigh Valley Hospital and the other to Temple University Hospital, where their conditions were not immediately available.
