Man hurt attempting to paraglide from car
A 22-year-old Lincoln man broke his back in a paragliding accident Sunday night.
Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner said Timofey Dudin was attempting to paraglide, behind a car driven by 20-year-old Aleksandra Dudin in a parking lot on the west side of Pawnee Lake.
Timofey Dudin had been in the air 20 or 25 feet when the tow rope detached from the car and he descended. Wagner said the fall left him with a couple fractured vertebra.
He was taken to BryanLGH Medical Center West. His condition was not immediately available Monday.
