A participant in the Petter Uteligger TV series and another were injured in a tandem jump at Voss Saturday morning.

Emergency services received notice around the 13:00 that the two completed a tandem paraglider stunt and landed in a tree in Liastølen, Voss.
“They say that they the wind went out of control, so they were tossed around,” said police operations manager Morten Kronen from the Western Police District to TV 2.
The two fell about 10 meters, hit some spruce trees, and then fell to the ground.
“Back injury has been mentioned, but we do not know how serious it is until they have been examined at the hospital,” said Kronen.
A participant in the new series belonging to Petter Nyquist, aka ‘Petter Uteligger’, was a passenger in a tandem jump with a paraglider, TV2’s communications director Jan Petter Dahl confirmed.
“It was not Petter himself, but one he had with him who conducted the tandem jump with a paraglider. They were having problems from the start, and crashed into a tree,” says Dahl.
