The images are mind-blowing.
An activist action by the NGO Greenpeace almost turned into drama this Tuesday evening on the lawn of the Allianz Arena before the kick-off of the France-Germany match.
An environmental activist wanted to land on the ground using a microlight equipped with a parachute but injured at least one person upon landing.
The parachutist, whose canopy showed the message "Kick out Oil", hit a cable that supports the aerial camera at the top of the stadium and injured a video technician and an official, according to our reports. information on site.

It was the doctor of the France team who took care of him urgently, while the activist was quickly arrested.
Can't believe I just caught this on video.
Parachuted into the stadium, got caught in the spider cam and nearly crashed into the crowd.
Hope he's ok!

After his uncontrolled fall at the level of the stands, debris was also found around the sidelines, but without damage.
Even if the worst has been avoided, this incident risks opening up a great controversy on the security set up around the stadiums of Euro 2021.
