A PARAGLIDER died in Puerto de Mazarron after his engine failed. The 61-year-old from Fuente Alamo was flying with a group of friends near Bolnuevo in an area popular with paragliding enthusiasts when his motor engine failed, and he crashed onto the Ermita beach as he tried to land. 

An official investigation has been launched to determine exactly what happened, but it is believed he was too close to the ground to activate the emergency chute and he died upon impact.
