Hand gliders crash into sand dune cliff

TWO hang gliders came unstuck when they crashed into a sand dune cliff at Teewah Beach at Noosa North Shore at the weekend.

At 12.55pm on Saturday there were reports of two hand gliders stuck on the cliff about 200m apart.

Initial reports called for the AGL Rescue 571 helicopter to locate and rescue the hang gliders, however the call was cancelled when the pair freed themselves.

One man suffered bruising to his right calf.

Both hang gliders suffered minor injuries.
