A 28-year-old man was badly injured at Rockbridge Adventures in Peachtree City on Sunday and taken by helicopter to Atlanta Medical Center. He was found bleeding from the head and complaining he had no feeling in his body below the neck.

According to a report from the Peachtree City Police Department, Jonathan Magwood landed on his head while attempting a front flip from a trampoline into a foam pit.

Witnesses said Magwood overturned on the flip, going around “a full flip and a half” before landing in the pit head first. The report said witnesses observed Magwood land on his head and saw that he was not moving.

The report said Magwood was bleeding from the head and may also have bitten his tongue as he was bleeding from the mouth. He also “complained about having no feeling in his body.”

The report said the facility manager indicated the trampoline was about three feet above the ground over a pit filled with foam.

Magwood was taken from the facility to a nearby open field, according to the report, and Life Flighted to Atlanta Medical Center.

[Ed. Note: The print edition of this story said  Magwood was 51. A reader wrote in to correct this, saying Magwood was actually 28.]
