Canadian Hang Gliding Pilot Swallows Memory Card After Woman Falls to Her Death
A 27-year-old woman went hang gliding for the first time before falling to her death during the flight in Canada. Apparently the young woman became loose from the harness that was strapping her to her instructor, which one witness says prompted her to frantically grab on to him before dropping hundreds of feet to her death.
"It looked like she was slipping down his body and eventually let go at the very end," the witness said.
The pilot on the trip, 50-year-old William Jonathan Orders, survived ... but now is the subject of an investigation after swallowing the memory card belonging to victim and her boyfriend that contained
video from the flight. Orders is facing obstruction of justice charges for the offense, but authorities say they'll still seize the card once it ... well ... passes.
On today's Kelly's Court, the panel debated whether or not the memory card could have evidence on it that proves Orders was negligent and therefore partially responsible for her death ... or if there's a potentially innocent explanation.
