Winds may be to blame in paraglider accident near Traverse Mountain
Traverse Mountain, UT — Winds may be to blame for a accident involving a paraglider. Lehi Fire Battalion Chief Kim Beck said the accident happened near Traverse Mountain.
Chief Beck explained there was only one witness to the accident. Beck stated the paraglider pilot got tangled up in his harness, dropped 50 feet out of the air and landed on his shoulders.
“Initially he was unconscious, did eventually regain consciousness and we transported him to the hospital via air helicopter,” said Chief Beck.
The chief adds winds may be to blame, “winds up here are very erratic, so it happens from time to time.”
The paraglider’s name has not been released, but he was taken to the hospital in fair condition.
