German paraglider Ewa Wisnierska was standing on Mount Borah in New South Wales, Australia, ready to jump, when there was a warning.
Some storm clouds had been sighted to the north, and as the day progressed, thunderstorm warnings got more severe. The paragliders had been cautioned, and Ewa set her GPS and tracking log. The clouds didn’t look so bad at first glance. She prepared to take off, not expecting what would soon happen.
