HCMC – A Russian pilot has met with an accident and fallen into the cliff from the height of 20 meters when joining the 2020 paragliding festival held in Mu Cang Chai District in the northwestern province of Yen Bai.

A grassroots officer of Mu Cang Chai’s Cao Pha Commune confirmed on June 2 that the accident happened on May 30, the local media reported.

After few seconds of taking off, the male pilot’s paraglider teetered and fell into the cliff.

The leader of Cao Pha Commune said that the pilot flew the paraglider in a wrong way, leading to the unexpected fall. The victim sustained minor back injury in the accident and is receiving treatment at Viet Duc Hospital in Hanoi City.

The paragliding festival taking place on Saturdays and Sundays from May 30 to July 15 is aimed at introducing tourism images of Yen Bai.
