First-time hang glider holds on for dear life after pilot forgets to attach him to craft


A man who went hang gliding for the first time had to cling onto a metal bar for more than two minutes when his pilot forgot to hook him onto the glider, heart-stopping footage has shown.

The terrifying clip from Chris Gursky’s first day on holiday in Switzerland has been shared on YouTube – after the fun activity turned into a “near-death experience,” Daily Mail reports.

After taking off from a 1219m mountain edge, Gursky had to hang on for two minutes and 14 seconds, as the pilot desperately tried to steer with one hand.
