HUTCHINSON ISLAND, Fla. - Two persons were injured Saturday morning when two motorized paragliders collided in midair, said John Belding, spokesperson for the Martin County Fire Rescue.
Belding said the two paragliders collided around 10:20 a.m. in the vicinity of Bob Graham Beach.
One of the paragliders "stumbled about 50 to 60 feet and landed in the area of the dune line," Belding said. He said the operator sustained serious injuries and was transported by LifeStar to Lawnwood Regional Trauma Center.
Belding said the second glider landed nearby and the operator sustained minor injuries. That operator was treated at the scene for minor injuries.
