Scrolling banner on news program this morning:
“… pilot parachutes to safety after a glider crash.”1The bold is my doing.
Would someone please clarify which of the meanings of after fit the incident.
adverb: following in time or place; we arrived shortly after; returned 20 years after
preposition: behind in place; people lined up one after another
subsequent to and in view of; after all our advice
conjunction: subsequently to the time when; We will come after we make plans.
adjective: later in time, in after years
Perhaps the sequence of events went: the pilot crashed the glider onto a ledge 1000 ft. above the base of a cliff and parachuted to safety after the crash.
Or, maybe it was a mid-air crash.
