A 37-year-old hang glider was moderately injured Saturday afternoon when his parachute became entangled in electric lines in the Golan Heights.

The man fell four meters after his parachute collided with the power lines. Magen David Adom Paramedics evacuated the man via helicopter to Rambam Medical Center in Haifa after providing initial treatment on the scene.

The man's friends reportedly told MDA paramedics that strong winds caused him to lose control of the parachute, leading to the collision and fall.
