A California resident who was dressed as Santa Claus and distributing candy from a motorised paraglider had to be rescued after he got entangled in a power line.

The fire department that rescued him said on social media that the man was using “hyper light” motorised paragliding equipment in Rio Linda and was flying too low when he got entangled in a power line.

According to a Fox News report, the man was throwing candy canes to local children on December 20 when the accident took place.

“We are happy to report #Santa is uninjured and will be ready for #Christmas next week, but perhaps with a new sleigh!” the fire department wrote, while sharing a video of the rescue.

The video showed the man dangling above the street. The fire department used a ladder to safely bring down the man who spent over an hour stuck in the power lines, a CNN report said.
