Paraglider Kevin Philipp nearly died after his lines were tangled. Philipp is seen heading towards the ground from thousands of feet in the air when a gust of wind tangled his lines, which sent him plunging. Then he managed to deploy his rescue parachute with seconds to spare before impact. This is not the paraglider’s first near-death accident. Five years ago, Philipp had to learn to walk again after a paragliding fall left him partially paralyzed.
