Acrobatic Paraglider Causes Concern In Honeoye Falls

Authorities say what looked like an emergency in the air in Honeoye Falls was a paraglider performing some acrobatics.

The 9-1-1 call center got three calls around 5:30 yesterday evening about what appeared to be a parachutist crashing near the Honeoye Falls Veterinary Clinic.

The investigation led to a known person who had been using a powered paraglider to perform stunts called a wing-overs.

The man was OK and the stunt was nowhere near restricted airspace, so it was legal.
