Paraglider Escapes Death After Crashing Into Power Line: Watch

That's why landing is the hardest part.

A peaceful descent during a snowy paragliding run in Canada earlier this year turned disastrous when the paraglider slammed into a power line and dropped to the ground. Video of the calamitous stunt was captured by a camera attached to the jumper's canopy.

The man can be seen circling in for his landing, and after going over a set of power lines, seemingly in the clear, another electrical line criss-crossed into his path. The paraglider simply didn't see it in time, and his body slams right into the wire and he immediately crashes to the ground.

Somehow, though, he walked away with no injuries, according to The Telegraph. Maybe pick some place a little more desolate for your next landing.
