Hang glider airlifted to hospital after crashing on mountain, California video shows

A man was airlifted to a hospital after getting injured in a hang gliding crash, California officials said.

The man endured “serious injuries” on Sept. 3 after crashing on Black Mountain in the Rancho Peñasquitos area, San Diego Fire Department officials said in a post on Twitter now rebranded as X.

Firefighters on the ground found the man, believed to be in his 20s, on the north side of the mountain, officials said.

Crew members hiked to the man off Glider Point Trail, firefighters told The San Diego Union-Tribune.

He was airlifted to a hospital by helicopter, officials said.

Black Mountain Open Space Park is 2,352 acres and access to the 1,554-foot summit is via a 2.5-mile hike, according to the city of San Diego’s website.

The man’s current condition is not known at this time.
