Hang Glider Stuck in Tree

HADLEY, Mass. (WGGB) — A hang gliding trip didn’t get very far today in Skinner Mountain. The man tripped during his take-off, causing the hang glider to spin. He then wound up stuck in a tree, 100 feet away from the launch pad. Rescue crews had to use ropes to lower the man 25 feet to safety. No injuries were reported.
