The Turkish thrill-seeker was forced to make emergency landing in a field.

A paraglider was left fearing he could drop out of the sky after an eagle tore two holes in his chute with its talons.

Ozgur Cicek was paragliding over Bademagaci village in the north of Turkey’s Antalya Province, near the Mediterranean coast, when the bird swooped down towards him.

The Turkish thrill-seeker screamed at the eagle to scare it away, but the beast continued taking swipes at the nylon.

Footage of the incident was caught on Mr Cicek's helmet-mounted camera.

The eagle attacked several times for more than a minute, forcing him to make an emergency landing in a field.

As Mr Cicek touched the ground, he said: 'Now I’m a paraglider who’s survived an eagle attack.'

When he later inspected the parachute, he realised the damage the eagle had done.

Writing on a video-sharing website, he commented: 'He pierced a hole in the parachute in two different places!'
