A paragliding incident where both chutes failed.

Dramatic footage captured in Kossen, Austria, has emerged of a paraglider screaming in terror as he plummets to the ground after getting his chute tangled in mid-air.

At the beginning of the video, the man appears to be smiling and taking in the scenery.

 

Seconds later, he can be heard crying out in horror as he rapidly spirals downwards. Free falling, he desperately tries to untangle himself.

He is forced to crash land after his reserve chute becomes intertwined with the glider.

Fortunately, a tree softens his landing and he is able to miraculously walk away without serious injury.

According to the person who captured the shocking accident on Jun 14, the paraglider spent the next six days in hospital.
