Vultures crash into paraglider over the Himalayas

A paraglider came down to earth with a bump when two vultures flew at him as he soared through the sky over the Himalayas.

One of the birds got tangled up in the glider's straps and the 24-year-old Russian started falling to the ground.

Despite being on his first flight, he managed to open his emergency parachute and landed safely with the bird, who untangled itself and flew away.
