If you've ever wanted to try something new or dangerous, hang gliding is definitely a thing to try. 

But if you're going to do it, you might want to make sure you're strapped in before flying up to the sky.

A video posted on YouTube channel Gursk3, shows him on the first day of his Switzerland vacation hang gliding. Well, call it more like, hung on for dear life gliding.

In the caption of his YouTube video, he stated:

My first time Hang Gliding turned into a near death experience as my safety harness was never hooked to the Glider. For 2 Min. 14 seconds I had to hang on for my life! The landing was a rough one, but I lived to tell the story.

In the video, you can see that he is never strapped in and hangs on immediately after take off.
