A man paragliding as Santa Claus had to be rescued on Monday in Rio Linda. 

According to the Daily Mail, the man dressed as Santa got tangled in power lines on his way to deliver candy canes to children. He sat 40 feet in the air for an hour as he waited for authorities to get him down. 

Roughly 200 homes in the area lost power briefly as the rescue team got him down safely.
