Ewa Wisnerska of Germany was paragliding in Australia, preparation for an upcoming event, when she was pulled into a tornado like storm that caused her to glide higher and higher into the sky. When it was all said and done, she was pulled up to 32,612 feet. Along the way, she blacked out, likely do to lack of oxygen, ands says the last thing she remembered was darkness and lightning all around her. Along the way, she encountered hail the size of oranges and -58 F temperatures. Amazing stuff!
Thanks for the tip Carl! Much appreciated!
