We received several separate reports of a paraglider falling out of the sky. We attended along with air ambulance but were able to stand down when it was confirmed that the paraglider was uninjured and had been carrying out some for of drill
The previous incident had only just got going when we had to reorganise our resources and attend this 32-year-old man. He had crashed his paraglider and suffered spinal injuries and an open fracture to his left leg. Again we were assisted by RAF Boulmer who took him, along with the first casualty, to hospital.
We were called by the Ambulance service to assist with the rescue of a Swiss Paraglider who had crashed on a crag on Wrynose Pass. Sadly, as we arrived on scene, we were notified by the Paramedics attending that he had died as a result of his injuries. We recovered his body and equipment to the road side and then back to Ambleside.
