A paraglider took off in the area of Karl-Ludwighaus and had to make an emergency landing on the Styrian side of the Rax after a few minutes flight. Hikers became aware of the paraglider and informed the emergency services. Comrades, who were on the Rax and the alerted crew of the mountain rescue Mürzzuschlag and Reichenau started a rescue operation. Shortly afterwards, however, the paraglider pilot was able to free himself from his position and descend unharmed into the valley.
