LAKEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Authorities say they are working to recover the body of a paraglider who was killed after crashing on Green Mountain.

West Metro Fire officials say the man called 911 after crashing Friday night at about 8:30 p.m.

Rescuers had to call off the search overnight because of the dark and steep terrain.

The man's body was located early Saturday. Fire crews and coroner's officials are recovering the body.

Details about the crash were not immediately available. Officials have not yet identified the man.
