A paraglider is feared to have suffered a spinal cord injury after falling from a height on Devil’s Dyke.
Emergency services, including the South East Coast Ambulance Service, were called to the popular beauty spot at 1.45pm on Monday.
Several paramedics were dispatched to the scene along with an air ambulance.
Photographs taken from the scene show the injured paraglider removed from the scene while dozens of spectators watch.
It is believed the injured were transported to the hospital by road, not an air ambulance.
A spokesman for the South East Coast Ambulance Service said: “At 1.45am on October 11, we responded to reports of a heavy fall from high paragliding.
“We sent ambulance crews to the scene and joined the air ambulance service, who worked together to treat paragliders who were suffering from possible spinal cord injuries.
“The paraglider was assessed and treated by road at Royal Sussex County Hospital.”
