Video shows last moments of two paragliders who died in Fethiye
Babadağı Mountain is a touristic hotspot, as many paragliding activities in Fethiye featuring in postcards start from the top of the mountain and end at the Ölüdeniz beach.
A video circulating on the internet shows the last moments of a Turkish paragliding pilot and a Pakistani paraglider as they plunged to their deaths in a tandem paraglide accident on April 15.
Öztürk and Zaheer went on a tandem paraglide in foggy weather conditions off a point on Babadağ Mountain, which is 1,965 meters high.
They disappeared shortly after the jump. Other pilots at the paragliding area noticed that something went wrong.
A gendarmerie drone spotted the men’s bodies on the rocks. Rescue teams who arrived in the scene confirmed that they were both dead.
Twenty-one hours after the accident, a military helicopter recovered the bodies and took them to the hospital in Fethiye for forensic examination.
