A paraglider was injured Sunday in a mishap in the mountains above Montecito.
The incident occurred at about 11:40 a.m. on Montecito Peak, according to Santa Barbara County fire Capt. Daniel Bertucelli.
The paraglider, who suffered moderate injuries, activated an emergency beacon, which led rescuers to him, Bertucelli said.
The paraglider was hoisted into the county’s Copter 308, and flown to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.
His identity and details on his condition were not available.
