DRAPER — A paragliding accident Sunday left a man with back injuries after he fell 50 feet.
Rescue crews with the United Fire Authority are rigging equipment to safely remove him from the crash site, which is about three quarters of the way up the hillside at the Flight Park at Point of the Mountain.
Capt. Clint Mecham said the accident was first reported at 4:41 p.m. and a medical helicopter was initially called out to ferry the victim, 41, to an area hospital.
Mecham said that on-site emergency responders found that his injuries were not severe enough to merit an air transport.
