A skydiver who's lucky to be alive after a weekend accident says he's ready to get back into the air as soon as he can.

FOX News Radio's Dave Anthony has the story:

Steve Frost admits:

Frost: "I was extremely lucky."

But he still wants to jump again after surviving a skydive Saturday near Tampa, Florida-- when he got tangled up with a small plane about 75-feet above the ground.

Frost: "Unfortunately my parachute got caught on the wing."

He says he tried to avoid it:

Frost: "I tried to make myself small by balling up."

Now, the way the pilot, Sharon Trembley tells it:

Trembley: "I saved his life."

He saw they were going to hit, so the 87-year old WWII Vet maneuvered his Cessna. If he hadn't:

Trembley: "The right wing of the airplane probably would have hit him right below the neck."

Frost and Trembley's plane smashed into the ground. But both men escaped serious injury.
