A rescue helicopter has found a paraglider dead on Mt Roy at Wanaka this evening.
Police say emergency services were alerted to a paraglider crash on the mountain shortly before 3pm today.
The rescue helicopter was able to access the crash site at around 5pm and found the paraglider, a 54-year-old Wanaka man, deceased.
A cliff rescue team has since recovered the man's body and police say they are in the process of notifying next of kin.
Earlier a police spokesperson told 1 NEWS police were alerted by paramedics to a man stuck on a rockface halfway up on the west side of the mountain, with his parachute still attached.
A helicopter had been sent to the scene from Dunedin.
"Maybe this has galvanised them, hearing each other's stories and knowing they are not alone," say the nurses behind the Facebook group, New Zealand, please hear our voice.
