[Video] Paraglider Collides With Eagle, Saved By Reserve Chute
Here is your heart thumping GoPro video of the week. During a routine paragliding expedition in the Indian Himalayans an eagle collides and is caught in the chute lines of the glider. Acting quickly he deploys the reserve chute and lands safely and frees the bird from the lines. This video would be scary from a 3rd person’s perspective but it is even more horrifying watching it first person, from a helmet cam.
