Reporter: This morning, a skydiver and a pilot are recovering after an incredible midair collision. All of it caught on camera. All of a sudden, I look over to my right, and there was an aircraft coming at me. I realized I was going have an impact and I scrunched up and prepared for being hit. Reporter: 49-year-old John frost was coming in for a landing at this small airfield east of Tampa when he saw the single-engine private plane piloted by Shannon Trembley. I didn't want to end up in the propeller. Reporter: The nose of the plane through the parachute's strings. That sent frost flying. It twisted me and jernl ked. I went to the back of the plane. Reporter: At the same time, Trembley, a world war ii vet, loses control and crashes to the ground at a 90-degree angle and then tumbles forward frost. I pulled back on the stick to make the airplane go up and not hit him. If I hadn't have thought fast enough myself, he would have been dead. Reporter: But frost, an experienced jumper, says he has never heard of a plane hitting a skydiver before. It was incredible. Reporter: The only thing perhaps more unbelievable than the images is that boast frost and Trembley survived with minor injuries. I'm very sore and have bruising and possible damage, but no broken bones. And right now, they don't think I have internal injuries. Reporter: The ntsb and FAA are investigating the accident. As soon as I feel safe again, I'll be out there. Reporter: For "Good morning America," Linzie Janis, ABC news, New York.
