Quote:If you’ve ever been on the fence about trying an extreme sport like hang gliding, this video will have you keeping your feet firmly planted on terra firma. On his first day of a holiday in Switzerland, YouTuber Gursk3 decided to try hang gliding, but the excursion didn’t go exactly as planned.

He was supposed to be safely tethered to the hang glider and just along for a leisurely ride while a skilled pilot steered the craft down a steep mountain. But shortly after takeoff, the pair realized that his harness hadn’t been connected to the glider at all, resulting in Gursk3 having to spend two minutes and 14 seconds desperately clinging to the craft while the pilot attempted to find a safe place to quickly land.

We have a word for that in Europe, it's called oops.

I wonder if that 'landing fracture' in the guys wrist is actually from beating the instructor senseless.

So I noticed. My sis sent me a link on WhatsApp this morning and I told her I'd already seen it a couple days ago.
