A paraglider is recovering after crashing about 200 feet down a cliff in La Jolla, Calif.

A helicopter pulled him from the deep drop Friday after rescuers loaded him onto a lift.

He was conscious throughout, but he did complain about chest pain.

Last weekend, a student paraglider slammed into the side of a cliff in the same area following a mid-air collision with another student paraglider. Both are OK.
