At least 22 military paratroopers were injured during night time military exercises in Mississippi, but so far, none of the reported injuries are life threatening.

Members of the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division out of Alaska were conducting night jumps at Camp Shelby, near Hattiesburg. Officials say something went wrong and several paratroopers ended up “in the trees.”

All 84 infantry members who were a part of that jump have been accounted for.
