Video: Paraglider Vs. Vulture

Posted on the 02 November 2011 by Kungfujedi @Kungfujedi
Here's a scary video to start the day. It features a paraglider floating above the Indian Himalaya, when he collides with a vulture, who becomes entangled in the glider's netting. Fortunately, the man is able to deploy his emergency parachute, allowing him to land semi-safely, at which time he still has to deal with the bird.
The paraglider is Russian but the video includes subtitles. Some of which will leave you laughing. I'm just glad that everyone was able to walk away in one piece.
Thanks to Gadling for sharing this video.
