Video: Dust devil sweeps up paraglider in Australia

A dust devil in Australia swept up a paraglider, swirling around him and then finally flinging him away.

The paraglider's wife took video as she watched the terrifying ride Wednesday.

The man was one of 40 people about to take off for a cross-country flight.

The dust devil seemed to come out of nowhere.

An instructor says the man was not hurt, and he safely continued on an uneventful, five-hour flight.
