A group of eight skydivers and two pilots were lucky to be alive on Saturday after the two planes they were in collided at 12,000 during a Wisconsin parachute jump and one plane crashed, but everyone on both aircraft survived, authorities said.

One plane broke into three pieces and crashed, but the pilot was able to jump out and parachute to safety, he said.

The other plane was less seriously damaged and the pilot was able to land at the airport in Superior, Wisconsin, which is on the Minnesota border and Lake Superior about 150 miles north of Minneapolis.

All of the skydivers, four on each plane, parachuted to the ground safely, Herwig said.
