Durban - Two men were killed when their propelled paraglider crashed into a mountain in Howick, Kwazulu-Natal on Saturday afternoon, paramedics said.

“It is unknown what caused the collision,” said ER24 spokesman Russel Meiring.

He said that local authorities were on the scene to investigate the accident.

Meiring said that by the time paramedics were able to access the mountainside by 4X4, the men, both in their 50s, were found dead on the scene alongside the badly damaged small aircraft. - Sapa
