(KSL News) -- A novice paraglider broke his leg this morning after flying into a mountain.
A paragliding instructor said the accident was partly due to a phenomenon called object fixation, which means people tend to fly toward exactly what they're trying to avoid.
The man got caught in a down draft while trying to land.
