Back in August, a woman visiting from Connecticut fell 200 feet from the sky and perished after the harness on her parasail failed.
This was the second parasailing death since 2007. Both accidents could have been prevented by simple measures and regulations.
Those regulations were proposed to the County Commission by a Broward County Advisory Board. The regulation was roundly rejected.
Have fun parasailing without a safety harness, everyone! It's more exciting when the possibility of being slammed into a hotel roof by strong gusts of wind might be involved.More »
