Lucky escape in powerline collision
A MAN has made a lucky escape after crashing into powerlines with his motorised hangglider on Monday morning.
It is understood the man in his 20s had been flying a gyrocopter around the Cassowary Coast area when he crashed into powerlines at a location off Sundown Rd at 7.30am.
“The patient has fallen from power lines into a sugar cane paddock,” a QFES spokeswoman said.
Queensland Ambulance confirmed paramedics treated the man at the scene for a minor laceration to his head, but he was otherwise unharmed. He was transported to Innisfail Hospital in a stable condition.
