On his first time hang gliding, this guy wasn't strapped in. Somehow he lived to tell the tale!

YouTube user Gursk3 uploaded this terrifying video that shows he and a pilot taking off on a hang glider. The thing is, his safety harness wasn't hooked to the glider. Here's what he had to say:

My first time Hang Gliding turned into a near death experience as my safety harness was never hooked to the Glider. For 2 Min. 14 seconds I had to hang on for my life! The landing was a rough one, but I lived to tell the story.

Upon landing, he broke his wrist, requiring surgery. Thankfully, that was the extent of his injuries as it could have been much worse.

You'll definitely be on the edge of your seat the whole video...they just keep getting higher and higher!
