Witnesses say the man jumped from a cliff, his parachute opened, but then a gust of wind blew him back into the rock. The parachute caught on a ledge. The man managed to stand on a rock just below and wait for help.

Two nearby rock climbers made their way to the man and helped him off the mountain. Fortunately he wasn't injured.
