This Video Of A Bloke Hang Gliding Without A Harness Is Pure Fucking Nightmare Fuel

It’s crazy that as I’ve grown older I’ve become absolutely terrified of things that humans are supposed to be afraid of. The ocean? Fuck that I’ve seen way too many nature docos to venture in there. Crocodiles? Excuse me while I cower in fear of the most complete killing machine ever evolved. As for heights, I realized a long time ago that God did not create man to be 30 meters unassisted in the air.

Well, one first time hang glider found out in the absolute worst way possible that his instructor might not be the ultimate professional he assumed, as he was left dangling in the air in the Swiss Alps hoping not to die.

On the first day of his holiday, YouTuber Gursk3 decided to shell out for some hang gliding, have a gander at the video below and you’ll see how that went.

Just imagine you’ve clocked on that you’re not attached to a harness, and then the pilot can’t get control of the glider so you’ve got to hang there screaming for your life while trying to enjoy a picturesque view.

Upon landing, Gursk3 fractured his wrist and had to get surgery. He also tore one of his biceps because of how hard and long he was hanging out. What a weapon.
