Paraglider injured after crashing into cliff
SAN DIEGO –- A paraglider was injured Tuesday when he slammed into the cliffs below the Torrey Pines Glider Port.
Someone called 911 at around 11:15 a.m. to report that a man had crashed into the cliff and then fallen to the beach.
Rescuers found a man in his 20s on the beach and attempted to pull him up to the Glider Port with ropes. When that didn’t work, they called in a helicopter to airlift the man.
The extent of the man’s injuries were not known.
