Paragliding take off nealy goes dangerously wrong

Footage of a paragliding take-off nearly going seriously wrong, after a flyer almost got dragged off the edge of a cliff by a rogue parachute.

The video, filmed in Brazil on May 5, shows a pilot taking off only for another paraglider to get caught up in the ropes of the other parachute and nearly getting dragged off the edge of a large cliff.

The filmer later wrote online: "Pay attention when you're about to take off.

"Serious accidents can happen but this time he was lucky."

"In this case it was a lot of luck, the other pilot wasn't connected to harness and wing," he continued.

"Prudence and a little more attention doesn't hurt anyone."
