SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A hang glider was injured Saturday afternoon while landing in the Black Mountain Open Space Park.

The man suffered a back injury in the short landing east of the gliderport off Black Mountain Road shortly before 4:30 p.m., according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

A fire-rescue dispatcher said the injured man would be taken to a hospital, but it was unclear if he would be transported by ambulance or by helicopter.
