On Saturday, the 17-year-old was being pulled by a boat on Lost Creek Lake. He was roughly 3,000 feet in the air when after detaching from the boat, he was taken by a strong wind gust. The gust carried the glider about 120 feet from the Lost Creek Lake Marina where he collided with a tree.
A helicopter was used to safely get the teen down.
