SINGAPORE - A Red Lions skydiver had a hard landing during a rehearsal on Tuesday (May 23) morning and had some minor scrapes, The Singapore Army said in a Facebook post on Tuesday night.

The jumper, 3WO Sim Chee Jin, said the "minor hiccup" resulted in scrapes on his arm. It happened during the parachute display for the Dynamic Defence Display Show at the upcoming Army Open House 2017.

"I'm glad to be given the opportunity to represent the Singapore Armed Forces Red Lions Parachute Display Team for display jump for the Army Open House 2017," he said.

"Although there was a minor hiccup during my landing in this morning's rehearsal jump, resulting in scrapes on my arm, the team is all set and ready to put up a good show for all this coming weekend! See you guys at AOH 17!"

The Army Open House 2017 takes place on May 27 and 28 at the F1 Pit Building.
