An Australian skydiver has been killed in a mid-air collision with another parachutist at Wilton in Sydney's southwest.

The man, aged in his 30s, appeared to have been knocked unconscious in the collision this morning. He lost control of his chute and landed outside the designated zone, police said.

It is understood that the man lost control of his chute and hit a hard object on landing.

An Ambulance NSW spokeswoman said paramedics arrived to find the man unconscious and he died at the scene.

The second parachutist,  39-year-old man, suffered minor injuries and was taken to Liverpool Hospital in a stable condition.
