CHELAN — A 55-year-old Wapato man was killed Wednesday afternoon in a paragliding accident off of Chelan Butte.

David A. Norwood died where he landed, about 150 yards down from the top of the Butte, according to a press release from Chelan County Sheriff Brian Burnett. Witnesses told deputies that one side of Norwood’s chute collapsed after he took off, and he fell. The accident was reported about 2 p.m. Norwood was well known in the paragliding community, the sheriff said.
