Manitowoc’s banged up mayor is back at work after a weekend skydiving accident. “I’m feeling a little better, still have a quite a headache,” says Mayor Justin Nickels.

Nickels was jumping tandem with instructor Andy Van Handel of Green Bay at Moosefest-a benefit for Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin- when they rolled and slid an estimated 40 feet after landing. The mayor struck his head, and struck the leg of spectator Steve Scheur. Scheuer broke his leg and will undergo surgery sometime next week.
