King City man injured jumping from crane in Maryland

Police: David Mazik, 33, was working on construction site.

Police in Baltimore County, Md., said a 33-year-old King City man was hospitalized Monday night after leaping from a crane on a construction site.

David Matthew Mazik was wearing a parachute, as well as a helmet to which two GoPro cameras were attached, police said. But the parachute failed to deploy completely during his 160-foot fall, and he was injured when he landed on a steel box, according to a news release from the agency.

The incident occurred just after 8 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Monday in White Marsh, Md., just northeast of Baltimore.

Mazik was transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center for treatment. A hospital spokeswoman described him Wednesday as being in good condition.

Mazik was working for the construction company, and his employer confirmed he was permitted to be at the site after hours, police said.
