FORT ATKINSON -- A skydiver was injured Sunday morning in Jefferson County when she missed her landing target at the Fort Atkinson Municipal Airport.  

Jefferson City Fire Chief Ron Wegner told the Journal Sentinel the woman landed short of the airport about three quarters of a mile to the west in a cornfield about 11:00 a.m. Sunday.

A Flight For Life helicopter was called in to transport the woman to the University Of Wisconsin hospital in Madison, though Wegner said the woman appeared to be okay.

There's no word yet on what caused the skydiver to miss her targeted landing point.
