In a viral video shared to Youtube, Chris Gursky shares a video of himself clinging for life onto a hang glider in Switzerland. Gursky traveled to the country for some great experiences including this first hang gliding flight. For more than two minutes, you can see Gursky dangling from the hang glider, flying over trees as they head toward a large grassy landing area.
Gursky's harness was not properly attached when he and a pilot launched themselves off a 4,000-foot mountain ledge. He later wrote on Facebook that he remembers looking down, thinking "this is it." Once his feet hit the ground, he was ripped away from the landing gear.
He ended up needing surgery for a broken wrist and also tore his left bicep. He had to have a titanium plate and seven screws installed in his arm before leaving the hospital.
