FORT RILEY, Kan. A civilian parachutist and three members of a military band were injured Thursday in a mishap during opening ceremonies at a 1st Infantry Division review.

Several thousand people watched the first of two parachutists land successfully, but the second one dropped on the 30-member division band, about 50 yards off target. A gasp went up from the crowd, followed by silence as a few rushed over to help.

"I hear, 'Oh, expletive,' and immediately, I hear a crash,"' said the band's commander, Chief Warrant Officer Scott MacDonald.

One band member was knocked unconscious, and another had neck and head pain. Post spokeswoman Deb Skidmore said both were released after treatment at Irwin Army Community Hospital.
