Miscalculated

I refer to the report headlined, 'Helicopter rescues paraglider in tree' (South China Morning Post, October 7).

There was no crash, there was no tree, there were no injuries.

Due to his own miscalculation, Chan Man-fai failed to catch a thermic cycle and as a result was not able to fly to the normal landing area in Shek O.
