Powered paraglider crashes into trees

A video has emerged from Florida, USA of a powered paraglider or paramotor pilot crashing into trees shortly after takeoff.

In the clip, which was filmed on Saturday, the man takes off and flies low to the ground. He then starts his ascent but clips a tree and crashes right into another.

Luckily the wing of his paraglider catches in a branch slowing his fall.

The pilot walked away uninjured.
