Tuesday at 1515hrs at the old quarry close to Captain Cooks Monument for a fallen paraglider. Great North Air Ambulance Service were on scene to evacuate the seriously injured male. Safe and steady extraction. The team wish the male our very best for his recovery. Whilst loading into the helicopter the male managed to keep his sense of humour saying “I hate flying” #hangglider #paraglider #getoutside #captaincooksmonument
