Paraglider killed during jump in Jamul

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) - The medical examiner is working to identify the victim killed in a paragliding crash in Jamul.

It happened in a steep ravine several miles from Otay Lakes Road near a gliderport.

Hikers say they saw a paraglider hit the side of a mountain seconds after his takeoff.

Air sport enthusiasts are baffled about why someone would jump solo off the mountain.

Copter two lowered a paramedic to retrieve the victim's body in the rugged terrain.
