Paraglider falls to death

    Thirty-seven-year-old Bart Bartmann, from Sinoville, north of Pretoria, was presumably caught in an unexpected wind around 16:30 on Sunday afternoon.
    “According to eyewitnesses, his paraglider went into a spiral twist after he took off from the mountain behind the African Swiss restaurant on the R512 in Broederstroom, and he plunged to the ground,” said Romano van der Spuy, spokesperson for the Hartbeespoort community policing forum.

    “It is presumed that an unexpected wind caused the paraglider to collapse.”
    Bartmann was declared dead on the scene. He presumably died on impact.
