Paraglider flown to hospital after Sunset Peak accident

A 36-year-old paraglider was flown to hospital after an accident on Lantau’s Sunset Peak on Sunday afternoon.

A man surnamed Lee was flying with a friend towards Pak Kung Au when he lost control near the Lantau trail at about 4pm, Sing Tao Daily reports.

He collided with a boulder, fracturing his left foot. His friends raised the alarm and Lee was flown by helicopter to Eastern Hospital.

South Lantau is one of seven designated locations for paragliding in Hong Kong.
