George Krokus was planning on making a festive surprise entrance to a charity volleyball tournament in Tampa Bay by skydiving down to spectators, where he planned to drop off the the elf toy to a 9-year-old girl.
In the video, Krokus is seen slamming into a pole and a tree and landing on the sand, to the horror of nearby onlookers. He was rushed to Bayfront hospital, where he underwent surgery on his tibia and fibula.
According to friends, Krokus has a broken leg but is expected to make a full recovery.

Royce says stopping that practice - courtesy of $300 million US tax dollars every year - is what's behind the Taylor Force Act. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has a double-digit lead over his top potential challengers in a new Israeli general.
The news that Krokus would be okay was a relief to Madison's step dad, Dominic Nelson, who helped organized the event. Krokus was scheduled to have surgery on his leg Tuesday.
Madison Spiers, a 9-year-old who witnessed the accident, later realized that her gift, an Elf on the Shelf, Kristoff, was in the plane with Krokus and she later received a "note" from him. "As we were about to land this big tree jumped right out in front of us!" Don't worry though... now G and I are resting in this hotel that they keep calling a 'hospital!' G has reservations for a few more days, going to hang out with him so he doesn't feel lonely. "I can't wait!" Kristoff wrote in a letter to the girl.
