ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4)– A man injured in a horrific paragliding crash got the chance to meet and thank the first responders who saved his life.

In August 2016, Sean Hall crashed while paragliding. He hit the ground at 50 mph. Most of his lower body was broken and he suffered internal organ damage.
