Man hangs on after glider pilot forgets to strap him in

PHOENIX — If you’re afraid of heights, look away.

A Florida man had to hang on to dear life during his first hang gliding experience after the pilot forgot to strap him in.

The man, Chris Gursky, posted a YouTube video Monday of the incident, in which he dangles from a control bar and the pilot’s leg during the experience in Switzerland.

The glider was at times hundreds of feet from the ground as it traveled from the top of a mountain for over two minutes.

Gursky fractured his right wrist upon landing.

Hopefully, Gursky’s next hang gliding experience goes a bit more smoothly.
