Just when I thought I'd go parasailing...

Been paraseiling, and while I don't fully understand what happened here - could they not have undone their harnesses and dropped into the sea?

^ I guess they panicked -- or couldn't swim. :s

Depending on high they were the water could have killed them or just as badly hurt them. Or the wind took them over ground pretty quickly.

I am going to the beach and thought about doing this....I'll pass now.

I always thought you go quiet a bit up in the sky, just searched Google on how high you are when parasailing.

 

This parasailing company stated: "Is 800' high your maximum height? Yes, FAA limits parasails to fly no higher than 500 vertical feet from the water (CFR 101.13).  500' up is about 800' of towrope"

Yup 800' was how high I went, dragged down a few times to skim the sea, up again and then freefall to the sea.  Was one of the best things I've done.

 

Don't let one freak incident put you off.
