German paraglider dies in El Hierro
A German paragliding enthusiast who crashed during a flight on El Hierro has died from his injuries.


33-year-old Stefan Oberlander was part of an international team taking part in a competition at the week-end. He sustained serious injuries in the accident, which occurred in the Valle del Gofio part of the island, and died 24 hours later. Oberlander and his colleagues had stayed on after the event, which is the second biggest in Europe, and decided to go out for another flight on Sunday. The local sports councilor Milagros del Vale expressed her sadness at the news and conveyed her condolences to the deceased's family.


......so sad.......

That sucks.
My Condolence to family and friends.
As far as I knew him he was one of a few guys who really lived their dream that intense.
In my opinion there are not very many people who had that much life in their years.
