Two paragliders crashed into each other at the Torrey Pines Gliderport Friday afternoon, but both walked away uninjured, a fire department spokesman said.

"We landed in a ravine and that saved us from rolling down the hill," said one of the paragliders involved. "What happened up there was really quick to figure out what happened, but the other pilot clipped my wing, everything collapsed and we threw our sheets."

Lifeguards were there to make sure they got down safely.
