Shortly after take-off, the paraglider fell 20 meters and was seriously injured

Fatal recreational accident Tuesday in the Tyrolean lowlands: Shortly after take-off in Westendorf (Kitzbühel district), a 69-year-old paraglider fell into the depths and suffered serious injuries.

The 69-year-old German flew his paraglider from the launch site on the Choralpe in Westendorf around noon. Shortly after take-off, the pilot probably lost control: he fell from a height of about 20 meters.

Transferred to a hospital in Bavaria
“The German suffered serious injuries,” police reported. After initial treatment at the scene of the accident, he was flown by emergency helicopter to the St. Johann district hospital and then transferred to the Bavarian clinic in Murnau.
