San Diego lifeguards and rescue workers plucked an injured paraglider off the side of a high cliff near the Torrey Pines Gliderport after he crashed about 3 p.m. Sunday.
The paraglider was loaded into a helicopter and flown to Scripps Memorial Hospital with serious lower back injuries.
The man was 47 years old and from outside the area, lifeguards said, so he may have been unfamiliar with the local wind conditions.
He was reportedly with a group of 20 paragliders from the United Kingdom who are touring paragliding sites in California and elsewhere in the United States.
