    Hello Joanne,

    I have this information from a paragliding instructor ho wrote on a paragliding group where I’m part of but not sure this person is your relative: “Nick is still in induced coma. Pressumable till the swelling gets better.”

    I hope this helps and maybe we will find more information this days..

    The person involved is a member of my family & we are devastated. What is hard is not knowing exactly what happened so if there’s anyone who knows anything about this accident it would be a little better in dealing with our aftermath. Thank you

    My brother was there at the time and his paragliding class tutor told the group to disperse from a ridge as it was getting too crowded, many of whom would be beginners rather than experience pilots

    For more than a few minutes of pleasure, a lifetime of pain can follow. Injuries in this case for some marriage and children. Or a few minutes of great joy?
