Video: Terrifying moment hang glider falls from sky

A hang glider has had a narrow escape from death, after his gilder broke during an aerobatic trick.

Jon Gjerde took flight during the Ekstremsportveko show in Voss, Norway. However, when he attempted to go from a spinning dive to a double loop, his hang glider broke under the G-forces, and he began to fall down to the lake below.

He managed to save himself by successfully pulling his emergency chute. Mr Gjerde fell down into Lake Vangsvatnet where he was rescued, with only minor injuries.
