Thirty-one skydivers survived a midair plane crash over Slovakia Thursday by jumping out of the planes, the Associated Press reported. Seven people on board were killed.
The planes crashed at an altitude of more than 4,900 feet with 38 people on board, the Slovak Air and Naval Investigations Bureau told the AP.
The parachutists on board were training for an upcoming air show in Slavnica, but crashed near the village of Cerveny Kamen, a spokesperson for the Slovak firefighters said.
Images of the midair crash showed burning debris from the planes.
