Adventurous Accident. I had height phobia, but to go hanggliding was my biggest dream

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐It was a bright morning and I could see the snow melting on top of the mountain and the bright rainbow shining. I put my boots on and hung my bag pack, tightened my pony and wore my shades. I ran downstairs, had a glass of strawberry shake and rushed to the gate. I was completely ready for my adventure today. Outside there was a big kite-shaped frame knitted with nylon cloth coloured purple with orange stripes on it. I advanced towards it, checked the engine and lubricated it.

When I sloped down at the foot of the cliff, a wave of nausea surged over me and I lay flat on the snow without thinking that I would soon be surrounded by polar bears and arctic wolves. The left part of my body which was stuck in the glider was bleeding and I felt as if my bones were ruptured and fractured. As blood spurted out, three vultures flew in circles above me but soon enough they flew away when they heard the voice of gun shot. I saw the rescue team running towards me and I closed my eyes? I was safe and sound now. ...read more.
