Colorado Man Killed In California Paraglider Accident
IMPERIAL BEACH, Calif. (AP) — A Windsor, Colo., man has been killed in a Southern California paraglider accident.
The San Diego County coroner’s office says 48-year-old Henry Ho was with an instructor and classmates when he crashed onto rocks in Imperial Beach on Wednesday.
A coroner’s statement says paramedics responded but Ho could not be revived and he was pronounced dead.
The newspaper U-T San Diego says Ho was founder of Financial Stewards Wealth Management Co. and was married with four children.
The city of Imperial Beach allows paragliding ground instruction but paragliders are not supposed to go airborne.
KNSD-TV reports that authorities don’t know if Ho intentionally launched or was accidentally lifted off the ground by the wind.
