A police source revealed to media outlet, JM, this afternoon that a paragliding accident in Madalena do Mar ended up killing both the instructor and student.
It is believed that a sudden wind change dragged the equipment and the two individuals over a cliff. The impact against the rocks was such, that neither could survive their injuries, despite the best efforts of the emergency services.
