Body of pilot found

A search helicopter has found the body of a 43-year-old paraglider pilot who crashed on Saturday in the Chrudim area. His wife announced her husband’s disappearance after he failed to return home in the evening. Rescue crews and volunteers searched throughout the night but found only his car and were otherwise not successful. On Sunday, the helicopter that found the man’s body, also uncovered his parachute that had been caught in the trees. A spokesman for the local police force confirmed that the man died on impact.
