Paraglider survives crash into cliff in the Swiss Alps
Paraglider survives crash into cliff in the Swiss Alps Paraglider survives crash into cliff in the Swiss AlpsClose call that was caught on camera American paraglider lost control of soaring in the Swiss Alps crash into a cliff. Somehow he did survive. Instead, he lost control and wasn’t able to write his path until slamming face-first into that mountain. When the extreme sport paragliding watches Greg Overton of Tacoma, Washington loses control of the glider. It’S parachute like Wing collapsing. His harness is spinning dramatically flipping him upside down, as he careened Overton screaming out, as he smashes into the Rock somehow he seems to turn the paraglider right way up as it drags along. The Steep rock face the crash, putting him upside down for nearly five minutes. Overtime travel to the Swiss mountain tops two weeks ago with a group of seven other paragliders for a so-called flying Excursion. I noticed it was a little bit bumpy and bouncy that every was extremely tough to reply to glider in it, and I actually decided to get out of there a little bit earlier than you did letting the wind take over a paraglider can stay in the air. For hours, but the glider doesn’t control the conditions and if the wind turn so can the glider. Luckily, in this case, Overton was taken to the hospital after suffering, only minor injuries, doctors calling him a walking Miracle, so again. Paraglider is doing well this morning, recovering from lacerations and bruises the guy. This could have been so much worse. His helmet split in half wow. He is very blessed. Thank you.
