Forty-nine-year-old John Frost told ABC's “Good Morning America” in an interview that aired Monday that he's sore and has some bruises, but no broken bones.

On Saturday, his parachute got entangled with an aircraft piloted by 87-year-old Sharon Trembley.

Officials say Trembley was doing takeoff and landing maneuvers in his cessna near the South Lakeland Airport when he encountered frost on his third landing pass. They were about 75 feet above the ground.

Trembley's cessna nose-dived into the ground. Frost was also tossed to the ground. Both men were taken to the hospital but escaped serious injury.

The National Transportation Safety Board and FAA are investigating.
