Paraglider rescued after crashing into cliff
DALY CITY, Calif. (KGO) -- There was a dramatic cliff rescue in Daly City Saturday after a paraglider crashed into the side of a cliff.
It happened at the end of Westline Drive. Crews with the North County Fire Department used ropes and pulleys to hoist the man up about 150 feet.
Fellow paragliders saw him go down. They say winds coming from the north shifted and pushed their friend into the rocks.
