ST. GEORGE — A paraglider apparently lost control of his craft Saturday and crashed into a Hurricane field.
The 47-year old man was flying his paraglider just before 9 a.m. when the incident occurred north of the Sand Hollow Reservoir.
“The pilot was new to flying, and we are not sure what caused the accident,” the Hurricane Police Department said in a press release.
The pilot was taken to St. George Regional Hospital with a broken leg and elbow. An investigation into the incident is pending.
This report is based on statements from police officers or other responders and may not contain the full scope of findings.
