Hang glider holds on for life during unsecured flight

World

The video already seen by millions continues to be circulated on the internet.

A man is seen clinging for life to a hang glider.

It happened in Switzerland last month while on a trip with his wife.

Chris Gurksy says he was about to take off when it became apparent that the pilot did not attach his harness to the glider.

You can see them soaring above the ground reaching almost 4,000 feet in the air.

Gursky was able to hold on for more than two minutes.

He hit the ground going 45 miles an hour and suffered a broken wrist.

He’s now back home in Florida and says he’s grateful his wife had a different pilot.
