Two paragliding practitioners died Saturday afternoon in Haute-Savoie during two separate flight crashes near the take-off area in Grand-Bornand, sources of mountain rescue said.
The first victim was a 64-year-old man who shortly after 13:30 saw the rescue team of the High Mountain Gendarmerie (PGHM) in Annecy in a cardio-respiratory arrest.
According to the first elements of the investigation, the sex screamed a few minutes earlier than Mont Lachat, the peak at 2100 meters above sea level in the Bornes Massif.

He allegedly suffered a wind rush that would force him to return to the ground. It was declared dead on the spot with relief.

Two surveys, entrusted to PGHM Annecy, are open to determine the exact circumstances of these two drama.
