A paraglider was thrown into the side of a mountain when a strong gust pulled him into the air and then brought him back down to Earth with a bump.

The man was slammed into Mount Maunganui in New Zealand as he tried to get ready for his flight.

He was unceremoniously picked up and dumped against the rock.

One spectator can be heard shouting "Oh s***" as the paraglider slams hard into the mountainside.

Secretary of the Bay of Plenty Gliding and Paragliding Club Dominique Le Sellin told Stuff in New Zealand that the mountain is a very safe place to paraglide and accidents like the one in the video are rare.
