Police in San Diego, California are still investigating a paragliding accident that took the life of a woman last weekend. According to her boyfriend, who was also paragliding at the time, the victim appeared to have lost control of her rig moments before crashing into a cliff. The victim, 52-year-old P.H., was visiting from the state of North Carolina with her boyfriend when the incident occurred. He called 911 and EMTs rushed her to a La Jolla hospital via medical helicopter. However, she was pronounced dead shortly arriving at the emergency room.
The case will remain open until an autopsy is conducted and a report is released. Reporters say that the scene of the accident is a popular spot for hang gliders from all around the country. Accidents can happen anytime, anyplace. However, when such incidents result in serious injuries and third party negligence is a factor, people may have the right to seek damages in North Carolina due to the personal injury laws of the state.
