sveiks edmi,
according to some Estonians newbie launched 16m2 kite in almost 20m/s wind....have been lofted over nightclub building and thrown in glass doors of another house. Luckily ended up in hospital alive.
But thats what You know as well without any details. Who knows more?

BTW, this rumor were spreaded during Neilpryde windsurfing cup in Ventspils (Latvia) where we invited Morten Lander (named Kamikaze) from Denmark to rip.
Some photo report from Estonians:

That sounds like one nasty accident. It is great that the rider survived. If anyone hears of additional details I would very much appreciate it if they could email them to me.

I just found the wind graph from my lofting at about 10:30 am on that date. It shows unstable weather that it would be well to avoid.
