Three U.S. Army soldiers were injured and rushed to the hospital early Tuesday after a night training accident at Homestead Air Reserve Base near Miami, officials said.

The soldiers, who were not identified, are a part of the Golden Knights – the Fort Bragg-based Army parachute team – and were conducting a HALO jump, base officials told WSVN-TV. The HALO jump requires soldiers to free fall from high altitudes before deploying a parachute.
