Authorities say an Illinois man has died in a hang gliding accident in central Florida.
The Lake County Sheriff's Office says 27-year-old Zachary James Marzec crashed Saturday on the runway at a small airport in Groveland.
Investigators say it appears that Marzec's hang glider malfunctioned, causing it to fall to the ground.
Marzec was taken to a hospital, where he died about an hour after the crash. Authorities did not release his hometown.
