The unorthodox landing did not result in injuries of any consideration but probably increased sales for Calvin Klein. It did leave him tangled up and hanging there for about an hour, though, before the fire personnel got him down
The British paraglider enthusiast, in his 30s, came down in the tree after taking off from El Salao with the intention of landing on the beach.
“To bring down the pilot it was necessary to use the fire wagon with the extending ladder as he was caught up about ten metres from the ground and dangling over a road leading down from an area known as El Morro or the Hotel Best Alcázar,” read the Policía Local communiqué,
