First-Time Hang Glider Hangs On For Dear Life After Not Strapping In
If you're a thrill seeker looking to step up the life-threatening aspect of something dangerous, not taken proper safety precautions will do it.
Chris Gursky was vacationing in Switzerland and wanted to try out hang gliding for the first time. His short flight almost ended up being his last.
Prior to the flight, his safety harness wasn't properly attached to the glider. Luckily the pilot noticed instantly and began working to make a safe landing. It was probably the longest 2 minutes and 14 seconds of this guy's life.
