It's a beautiful day in Switzerland for an adventure in the sky. A group of paragliders safely take off from a mountain and begin to soar above the scenic landscape. But, things take a terrifying turn when one of the paragliders suddenly gets tangled up in his lines and begins plummeting towards the ground. He pulls his reserve parachute, which fails to inflate properly. Watch the man's shocking crash landing that he miraculously survives.

While the fog surrounding them could have decreased their visibility and created a major problem, they were able to make it through and enjoy the beautiful Bernese Alps. View Now
