Break.com has a clip up showing a horrible paraglider crash that happened almost immediately after take off. I have zero experience with the support so I cant in any way say what happened. But it looks like a gush of wind suddenly threw the guy out of control and he plummeted to the ground.
The video story and post on YouTube doesnt say whether or not the man had injuries, but the video says near death crash so were assuming he survived.
In any event, this would be an awful experience.
