Paragliding body launches investigation into death of Hong Kong pilot

An inquiry and safety review have been launched following a paragliding accident that claimed the life of a 44-year-old Hong Kong pilot last month, the Post has learned. The investigation committee was set up by the Hong Kong Paragliding Association after rescuers found the body of Patrick Chung Yuk-wa last Friday, six days after he went missing on July 22. Chung had joined a group of more than 10 paraglider pilots who took off from Sunset Peak, also known as Tai Tung Shan, in Lantau South Country Park.
