A foreign paragliding tourist managed to fall from a height of almost 2 kilometers in Turkey and at the same time survive. According to the Daily Star newspaper, the incident took place in the popular resort of Oludeniz in Turkey.
The tourist, 27-year-old Angus George Beeton, planned to paragliding from Mount Babadag, from a height of almost two kilometers. When the tourist, having accelerated, took off, “the unthinkable happened,” the newspaper writes: his paraglider did not open. The tourist began to fall rapidly and crashed into the rocks.
Witnesses of the incident made an emergency call, after which the members of the search and rescue battalion of the gendarmerie and the National Medical Rescue Group rushed to the scene in search of a tourist. Fortunately, their search was not delayed – the tourist was found alive, loaded on a rush and taken to the nearest hospital in the resort of Fethiye.
As a result, the tourist received several fractures. But at the moment, nothing threatens his health, he receives all the necessary treatment.
The publication, however, warns tourists – not everyone succeeds in being “born in a shirt”. Just a few days ago at the same resort, another British tourist also hit the rocks in a paragliding accident. It was not possible to save him.
