Korean National Death: Chinese Manja Not the Cause of Death

Investigators probing the paramotoring accident at Kadi in Mehsana on December 24 in which a Korean national fell 50 ft to his death found that it was not caused by getting entangled in nylon kite string (Chinese manja). Mehsana police have concluded that he died because he performed stunts in the air, causing the suspension lines of the canopy to get entangled.

Mehsana police are likely to file a closure summary report in the case, for the accidental death of 51-year-old Shin Byeongmoon from the Republic of Korea.

Byeongmoon and his friend Chang Hyu Jeong, 62, had been paramotoring over Kadi for around one-and-a-half hours on December 24 before the accident. Byeongmoon was an experienced paraglider and had 1,000 hours of experience in 50 different countries.

Byeongmoon had come to Vadodara to meet Hyu Jeong, who has been living there for 10 years. Byeongmoon and Hyu Jeong both ran medical equipment manufacturing businesses. The two Korean nationals had gone to meet a friend, Prakash Patel, a resident of Visatpura in Mehsana, who recommended paramotoring in Kadi.
