Paraglider Ditches In Lake Rescued By Police Helicopter

This paraglider's engine quits during a sightseeing flight over Folsom Lake in California. Watch as the pilot frantically struggles to restart the engine and ultimately splashes down. Lucky for the pilot, there was a local police helicopter training in the vicinity which turned into a real life rescue scenario.

Kudos to the pilot who was equipped with a portable radio, floatation device and acted promptly and decisively in a stressful situation.
