VERNON, B.C. - One man is dead after a powered paraglider crashed north of Vernon, B.C.
It appears the man lost control of the craft before slamming into a field Thursday.
Police say the pilot was conducting a training flight at the time with the glider, which is a non-registered aircraft.
The age of the pilot and his hometown are not immediately known.
The RCMP and B.C. Coroner's Service are investigating. (News1130,CKIZ,CKFR)
