Paraglider killed outright in 50-metre fall onto Mazarrón beach
04 October 2016 @ 23:11

A PARAGLIDER has been killed in a 50-metre fall onto the La Ermita beach in Mazarrón (Murcia).

The 61-year-old man, from nearby Fuente Álamo and identified only by his initials of P.Z.G., was seen on Sunday morning plummeting down to the beach due to a failed motor in his paragliding apparatus.

Dozens of calls were received by the emergency 112 hotline, and firefighters and police rushed to the scene ahead of the ambulance, which was only a few minutes behind.

Those at the scene attempted to revive the man, but his injuries were so severe that he was thought to be past saving at the moment of impact.
