Hang Glider Not Strapped In

I made the mistake of watching this prior to going to bed, which was a bad choice.

Mr. Gurksy paid for a tandem Hang Glider experience, and when they took off both he and the pilot realized he was not strapped in. My heart was racing as I watched this, the good news is that he lived, and while he did tear his bicep tendon and fractured his wrist, he made it back to the ground alive.
