Paraglider rescued after landing in sea off Saint Agnes.

A paraglider had to be rescued after he ditched into the sea off Saint Agnes.

The man had launched from nearby cliffs but soon found himself dropping.

The RNLI and the coastguard arrived on the scene and the man was then winched into a helicopter and flown to the Royal Cornwall Hospital.

The RNLI say it was thanks to witnesses who quickly dialled 999 that he was able to be safely rescued.
