A local man died Sunday when he crashed into a South Bay hillside in a paragliding accident, according to police.
The man, who is not identified by police, crashed his paraglider into a hillside at Ed Levin County Park at around 1:40 p.m. Sunday, according to the San Jose Mercury News.
The park's Monument Peak Trail, where he crashed, is popular with hang-gliders and paragliders, who use long cords attached to a parachute to navigate air currents.
It appears the man had some sort of flight failure and attempted to open a parachute before smashing into a foothill, but could not avoid the hillside.
He was conscious when paramedics arrived but died at the scene, according to officials.
