BEND, OR -- A Reno, Nevada man was hurt while making an emergency landing with a paraglider, on Pine Mountain, Sunday afternoon. The 34-year-old launched from the west side of the mountain but got caught in unpredictable winds; he was forced to land the glider outside of the designated landing zone on the east side of Pine Mountain.

 

Michael Lee was piloting a non-motorized paraglider similar in shape to a parachute. He was taken to St. Charles Bend for observation.
