An injured paraglider is lifted approximately 150 feet from his crash site on Red Mountain in Glenwood Springs, Colo., by a U.S. Army UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter and crew from the Colorado Army National Guard's nearby High-altitude Army National Guard Aviation Training Site, Aug. 21, 2013. The site of the crash, a steep, 60-degree, rock-strewn gully more than a thousand feet up the mountainside, proved unsafe for civil rescuers on foot to ascend or descend with the patient, therefore the helicopter outfitted with a hoist was called in to assist civil authorities, as no civilian aircraft with the capability was available.
