The paraglider killed when he crashed into a rock-face on Mount Roy near Wanaka yesterday has been named.
He was 54-year-old David Michael Jongsma, of Hawea Flat.
Mr Jongsma got stuck on a rockface, about half way down the mountain, after crashing into it around 3pm.
A rescue helicopter reached the scene two hours after the crash, but Mr Jongsma was already dead.
A cliff rescue team later retrieved his body.
The death has been referred to the coroner.
