NORFOLK, Va. (AP) -- A skydiver remains hospitalized after being injured in a hard landing at Suffolk Executive Airport.

Suffolk police tell media outlets that 23-year-old John Talbot Brown had an open parachute when he landed Sunday at the Suffolk Executive Airport. Brown had made several jumps earlier in the day.

Police say Brown was in critical condition Monday at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. The extent of his injuries was unavailable. A hospital representative declined to release information on his condition Tuesday.

The accident remains under investigation.
