A BRITISH tourist was killed in a horror paragliding accident near an 8,500ft-tall mountain peak in Spain.

The 50-year-old’s body was taken away by a police helicopter after an incident on the south side of a peak called Pico Gallinero in the Aragonese Pyrenees.

Civil Guard was alerted around 1.30pm on Thursday and officers from the Greim mountain rescue team responded while a police chopper was mobilised.

They are said to have discovered another two people practising CPR on the unnamed Brit when they reached the scene, but he died due to the severity of his injuries.

The causes of the accident are now under investigation.
