A PARAGLIDER fell 10 to 20 metres to his death at Mt Archer near Kilcoy on Sunday morning.

Paramedics and the Sunshine Coast-based RACQ Careflight rescue helicopter's medical team of a Doctor and intensive care paramedic were called to the scene just after 10am but were unable to revive the man in his mid 30s.
