Canadian police confirmed on Wednesday that William Orders, the British Columbia hang-glider pilot involved in a fatal accident on Saturday, swallowed a memory card that may contain video evidence of the tragedy. Investigators say X-rays show the memory card inside Orders, who was charged with obstruction of justice for withholding evidence. Video from the camera mounted on the glider's wing, part of the promised experience on Vancouver Hang Gliding tandem flights, may reveal what led 27-year-old Lenami Godinez to fall to her death. Police will hold Orders in custody until he passes the memory card, which is expected to survive digestion. More charges against Orders could follow pending the evidence.
