Hang glider's scary moment caught on camera

A man on a hang glider found himself spiraling toward a lake below after his glider gave out.

According to Mashable, Jon Gjerde was hang gliding at the Ekstremsportveko show in Voss, Norway, on Tuesday when his glider gave out.

As Gjerde was performing tricks, the glider caved in, sending Gjerde spiraling toward Lake Vangsvatnet below.

He deployed his emergency chute and fell into the lake. Gjerde suffered only minor injuries and was rescued by boats in the water.
