Last night a man paragliding in the western slopes of mount Mosfell lost control of his paraglide and crashed to the ground. The fall was hard and an ambulance was summoned. Visir.is reports this today.

Paramedics from the fire brigade brought the man to the emergency room, first in a 6×6, then by an SUV and finally by ambulance.
The man’s injuries turned out to be less severe than expected. He was however in a state of extreme shock.
