On the evening of January 12th, 2022, at approximately 4:30 P.M., CHP H-32, CHP H-20, REACH 6, Cal Fire, and firefighters from Yolo County, successfully located the injured paragliders. Reports from a brief interview with the paraglider, during flight he clipped the top of a ridgeline, causing him to lose control and plummet to the side of the cliff-face.
