Paraglider Rides Thunderstorm to 32,000 ft
Ewa Wisnerska, paraglider, got caught in one of Australia’s notorious thunderstorm updrafts, spiraled up to 32,000 ft, was pelted with hail, encased in ice, lost consciousness from the low oxygen, and returned safely to Earth fifty miles from where she started. Her trip was logged by her GPS device. She intends to complete the competition she’s attending.
