One dead in paraglider crash

Emergency crews in the North Okanagan are on the scene of a fatal paraglider crash in the Enderby area.

RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk says emergency crews were alerted to a field in the 5600 block of back Enderby Road for what was reported to be an ultra light plane crash.

Molendyk says crews at the scene determined the craft to be an unregistered powered paraglider.

"It was being operated by a pilot who was on a training flight at the time," says Molendyk.

"Indications are he lost control of the craft . . ."

Police are not releasing the name, age, gender or where the pilot is from. 

The RCMP and BC Coroners Service are investigating the crash.
