An American man visiting Switzerland almost took his last ride during a tandem hang gliding adventure.Chris Gursky posted the incident to YouTube.
He was ready to fly off of a cliff with a pilot but Gursky wasn't attached to anything.Two minutes of fear happen next. The footage shows Gursky holding on as the pilot tries to find a clear area to land. They flew over trees and houses with Gursky struggling to maintain his grip.
At one point, he was only holding on with one hand.They eventually found a grassy area to bring the hang glider down. Gursky joked that he had left a handprint on the metal bar because he held on so tight.
Even knowing the outcome, it's still really hard for me to watch.
