He was the victim of a fall and his death was noted by a Samu doctor, indicates BFM Côte d'Azur, which specifies that a piloting error on the part of the victim was the cause of the accident.
Already an accident in November
An accident occurred in the same area in November, when a paraglider got his glider stuck in an overhead line.
No injuries were reported, but rail traffic was suspended for part of the afternoon, recalls France 3 Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur.
“The Roquebrune-Cap-Martin site is one of the most beautiful paragliding sites in Europe and attracts a lot of people.
The problem is that some take liberties and do not position themselves in the right place,” reacted a monitor to Nice-Matin at the time, fearing that this type of accident would put the site “at risk”.
