A paraglider was injured last Friday afternoon, January 1, after crashing on East Sandwich Beach, according to a post by the Sandwich Police Department on its Facebook page. A Sandwich Fire Department ambulance transported the East Sandwich man to Cape Cod Hospital. 

Sandwich police and fire crews responded at about 12:30 PM to a report of a paraglider crash on the beach near 55 North Shore Boulevard. They found the 58-year-old man had sustained minor injuries when the wind caused his motorized paraglider to fall about 25 feet onto the beach, according to the Facebook post.
