A paraglider made a rocky landing in Norway. Literally.

The paraglider admitted it was his first time flying in this area of Norway, so he wasn't familiar with the terrain.

As he began losing altitude, he searched the landscape for a safe place to land.

He crisscrossed over the road before hitting a rock bank, crashed into a railing and then bounced off the rocks on the ground until he finally came to a stop.

The paraglider said he couldn't walk for a week after the crash but is recovering.
