Paraglider Collides With Eagle


Russian paraglider 'Paravoffka' has had a lucky escape after hitting an eagle while soaring over the Bir Billing region of the Himalayas.

Paravoffka collided with the bird during his first flight on a trip to India. With the bird caught in his rigging, his parachute folded up and he began to plummet to earth.

Luckily Paravoffka was able to open his reserve parachute to slow his descent, making a relatively soft landing in the forest below.

Here is the uncensored version of the video:

The paraglider and bird were left unharmed.

About World Sport Bloopers

World Sport Bloopers was created following the frustration of using video sites. Many offered videos that were filed under 'funny' or 'humor' but were not specific to sport. It required a lot of searching to find what we wanted. Even when you found the video, it was often edited poorly or inserted in a news segment so it had less impact.

World Sport Bloopers is inspired by UK shows like Fantasy Football (hosted by comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner), the eccentric Frenchman Remi Gaillard and US shows like Jackass. We aim to bring you the best bloopers, fails and WTF moments. We hope you enjoy the site!!
