Wednesday 13 November 2013
A British woman from Cheltenham in Gloucestershire has died while paragliding in Tenerife.
Carolyn Dewdney fell to the ground in the mountainous area of Adeje in the south of the island during a trip with her husband, the flight's organiser confirmed.
Mrs Dewdney, 53, was on a week-long paragliding holiday with her husband Nigel, who participated in the 2010 Paragliding World Cup.
Henry Willder, who runs the specialist company that organised the trip, said Mrs Dewdney was believed to have suffered a heart attack during her flight and her husband was “inevitably, absolutely devastated”.
