Paraglider crashes near Affligem, Belgium; pilot hospitalized

This morning, a Belgian pilot of a paraglider (kind of engine-powered hang-glider) crashed on the driveway of a house in Affligem, Belgium. Emergency services rushed to the scene, the severely injured man was then taken to hospital.

Most likely, he got surprised by turbulence or the thermals that fell over a number of trees but further investigation needs to be performed.
