SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Lifeguards say a woman is thankful to be alive, after a paragliding crash near the Torrey Pines Glider Port.

The woman, who is in her thirties, crash landed hard on the side of a cliff after she caught cross currents in the wind.

Rescue crews brought a stretcher down about 40 feet from the top of the cliff where the woman landed to take her to safety.

Lifeguards say the woman couldn't walk because she injured her lower legs but she is expected to recover.
