Man injured in paragliding accident


PIER. SANIKA DANGE JUST SPOKE WITH HIS BEST FRIEND. SANIKA: THEY ARE HOPEFUL FOR A GOOD RECOVERY, MAYBE A FULL RECOVERY. YESTERDAY, DAMO LEROY, WHO WAS REALLY WELL KNOWN IN THIS COMMUNITY, HE IS A PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE, WHO HAS BEEN DOING WATER SPORTS FOR THE LAST SEVERAL DECADES. A FRIEND TELLS ME THAT YESTERDAY HE WAS PRACTICING POWERED LIGHTING — PARAGLIDING IN JUNO BEACH. HE GOT TANGLED. HE IS NOT SURE EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED, BUT HE DECIDED IT WAS BETTER TO DROP THAN RISK FALLING NEAR THE MOTOR. HE FELL, AND ACTUALLY TIMED IS FALL.>>HE IS A WORLD-CLASS ATHLETE, HE WAS AN OLYMPICS GEAR. — SKIER. SO, WE SHOULD NOT BE SURPRISED HE HANDLED IT WELL. BUT HE COULD ONLY DO SO MUCH WITH THAT TYPE OF ACCIDENT. SANIKA: LEROY DID SUFFER A BROKEN FEMUR AND SEVERAL MINOR INJURIES. YET EIGHT HUNDRED ALONG, — HE HAS A PUNCTURED LUNG. HE WAS IN SURGERY OVERNIGHT AND IS NOW BEING MOVED TO RECOVERY.
