Help flies for paraglider pilot's family

Central Station | 2 Aug 2018

The Hong Kong Paragliding Federation is collecting donations to help the family of a pilot who died after setting out on a flight from a Lantau mountain.

The federation posted a photograph of paraglider pilot Patrick Chung Yuk-wa, 40, in a commemoration on its Facebook page. He was killed in an as-yet unexplained accident.

The federation also thanked people for their continuing support on behalf of Chung's family as it provided details of how best to donate.

Chung went missing on July 22 from heading to an area below Sunset Peak for a takeoff. But searchers only found him dead on Friday. He was relatively close to where he had taken off. Hundreds of searchers had scoured the area, backed by a helicopter and boats.

Dozens of paragliding enthusiasts also visited Sunset Peak for a memorial event.

"We wish he rests in peace and hope he can fly freely forever," the federation wrote.
