Paraglider stuck in tree

A less-than-perfect landing left a paraglider hanging from a tree Saturday in the Lower Mainland.

Emergency crews were called to a field near Killby Road in Harrison Mills after a paraglider got stuck near the top of a tall tree.

The woman apparently missed her landing after taking off from Woodside Mountain and getting caught up in the wind.

The woman was rescued nearly four hours after her noon-time crash.

She suffered minor injuries and was taken to hospital.

Chilliwack RCMP told CTV News incidents like these are fairly common in the Fraser Valley.
