A Florida paraglider is lucky to be alive after he slammed Tuesday morning into power lines carrying 7,200 volts of electricity, knocking out electricity in a St. Petersburg neighborhood

Paragliders have long plagued the neighborhood, [neighbor] Jim Tallon said. “You could start a house on fire, he could kill himself,” the fed-up resident said. “He could hurt somebody on the ground. There is a child’s playground right down there.”
