Screen shots from a video showing a paraglider being rescued after crashing into a cliff at Thorncombe Beacon, Dorset  - yesterday evening (15/7/18).<br />
<br />
This is the dramatic moment a paraglider was rescued after crash-landing into a 500ft cliff.<br />
<br />
The man, aged  in his late 20s, found himself stuck on a very narrow ledge about 280ft up the cliff at Thorncombe Beacon, near West Bay, Dorset.<br />
<br />
Luckily a member of the public witnessed him crash and called the emergency services at 5.50pm on Sunday. <br />
<br />
Incredibly the paraglider suffered only minor cuts and bruises.
