Video: Man Injured in Paraglider Crash on Wildwood Beach
A man in a motorized paraglider crashed on the beach in Wildwood just after 12:30 Saturday afternoon, resulting in serious injuries.
Wildwood Police say the crash occurred on the beach near Spencer Avenue. When officers arrived, they say a white male was still strapped into the seat of the glider, which was laying on its side in the sand.
The man was treated at the scene and transferred to AtlanticCare Regional Medical Center in Atlantic City.
Police have determined, after talking with a number of witnesses, that the glider became tangled with the parachute, and the glider fell 30 to 40 feet onto the sand.
This video was reportedly taken in Wildwood minutes before the crash. It's not known if any of the vehicles in the video were involved in the crash.
No word on the man's current condition.
