Will Go On Trial Next Year
The Obstruction of Justice trial for Canadian hang-glider pilot Jon Orders will not take place until next year, according to officials in British Columbia. Orders was flying the aircraft from which Lenami Godinez-Avila fell during a tandem flight, resulting in her death.
The charge against Orders stems from the fact that he swallowed a camera memory chip which contained images of the flight. CBC News reports that police are still working to extract data from that chip, which went entirely through Orders' digestive tract.
Orders has apologized to Godinez-Avila's family for the incident, saying he swallowed the chip in a panic after the flight. He admitted to police that he had done so shortly after it happened.
Orders was released on bail after surrendering his passport and agreeing not to participate in any hang-gliding activities.
The trial will take place before a judge with no jury, and is scheduled to begin April 15th, 2013. The reason for the woman's fall has not been determined.
