77-Year-Old Paraglider Crashed In Dorset… Today’s Debate

The pictures in today’s media of the amazing rescue of a paraglider in Eype, Dorset, have got us all talking at w&h.

The daredevil sportsman apparently crashed into a cliff face following a sudden drop in wind – and he was only prevented from crashing to his death by passers-by sitting on his parachute above.

But the most amazing part of the story is the paraglider’s age…77! Admittedly, this wasn’t his most successful outing, but the fact he is still doing this sport in his 70s is proof of our mantra, that it’s attitude not age that counts.

We certainly hope he continues doing the pastime he loves. Proof life is about attitude not age!
