We officially don’t need to go hang-gliding anytime soon 😱 In a now viral video, a first-time hang glider forgot to attach himself to the glider and was forced to hang on for dear life for several minutes as the pilot attempted to steer the craft.
YouTuber Gursk3 has since uploaded the video from his first day of holiday in Switzerland.
In the video, you can see Gursk3 and the pilot taking off. After lift off, the pair realize that his harness hadn’t been connected. Gursk3 then spends two minutes and 14 seconds desperately clinging on while the pilot attempts to quickly land.
The duo did indeed safely land, but Gursk3 suffered injuries — a fragmented distal radius fracture on his wrist, which required surgery and a titanium plate to fix, and a torn left bicep muscle.
