Parachute accident at BYU vs. Wisconsin game

- A college football game on Saturday between BY and Wisconsin started off with a bang -- literally.

Videos on Twitter show one of the parachute operators coming in fast and striking a barrier at speed ahead of kickoff.

A video from Scott Thompson shot near the point of impact captured an audible "bang!" as the parachutist came in toward the crowd and struck a barrier.

Another video shot from farther away by Jeremy Roberts shows the crash from a wider angle.

A spokesperson for Brigham Young University says there were no injuries in connection with the mishap.

BYU says the parachutist was representing the Navy Seals.
