A paraglider caught in a crosswind suffered multiple injuries after falling from the sky over the “M” trail outside Bozeman, Montana, on June 29, local media said.

In video by Jeff Schlauch, the glider can be seen swirling around before his hard landing.

Schlauch’s footage shows a rescue helicopter approaching the scene before the glider is airlifted from the hillside.
