SAN DIEGO (AP) - A paraglider has died after crashing into some cliffs in San Diego.

The medical examiner's office says 52-year-old Pamela Hargett of Inman, S.C., was killed Saturday at Torrey Pines, a beachside area popular with paragliders.

Hargett's boyfriend was also paragliding, and saw her slam into a cliff and called 911 just after noon.

San Diego lifeguard Lt. Nick Lerma says lifeguards rappelled down to retrieve the woman but she was pronounced dead at the scene.
