Hangglider Jon Gjerde’s run at the Ekstremsportveko show in Voss, Norway, took a harrowing turn last Tuesday when Gjerde’s glider gave out under extreme G-forces.

All seemed well as Gjerde attempted an intense spinning dive, which he then turned into a loop, but as he tried to go into a second loop, his glider collapsed and began to spiral towards the lake below.

Fortunately, Gjerde was able to pull his emergency chute which successfully deployed despite the glider’s spiral.

Check out the tense moments in the video below.

 

Another view of from the ground shows exactly the moment when things went wrong.

Luckily Gjerde was able to make it to safety, sustaining only minor injuries.
