Talk about spine-tingling.

Florida-based Chris Gursky, an auto-parts manager and photographer, shares his near-death experience hang gliding in Switzerland as the pilot took off without ensuring Gurdsky was properly tethered to the glider.

The incident, captured in crystal-clear video, is really something.

In posting the video to YouTube, Gursky writes, “My first time hang gliding turned into a near death experience as my safety harness was never hooked to the glider. For 2 minutes 14 seconds I had to hang on for my life! The landing was a rough one, but I lived to tell the story.”
