A Paragliding Mishap: Anthony Vella’s Story of Survival

As mentioned on his channel, Vella is a former US Army soldier who served in Afghanistan. He’s now a pilot and uses his platform to advocate for aviation. Vella was test-flying a BGD Luna 3 paraglider above Enchanted Rock State Park in Arizona. Suddenly, the aircraft collapsed, and he crashed to the ground at 50 miles per hour from about 100 feet in the air.

After the crash, Anthony felt a lot of pain and tried to use Siri to call 911, but it didn’t work. He called emergency services and told them he crashed in the Texas desert. Someone came to help him, but he couldn’t give his exact location. He asked to call his wife while emergency services asked where he was, and he worried about his broken arm. Finally, he reached his wife on the phone, and the ambulance came.
