Woman Falls From Parasail Harness Off South Florida

August 17, 2012

South Florida authorities say a woman plummeted as much as 200 feet into the Atlantic ocean after her parasail harness broke.

Pompano Beach Fire Rescue spokeswoman Sandra King tells the Sun Sentinel that the 28-year-old woman was parasailing with her husband Wednesday afternoon when her harness broke.

King says the boat crew reeled in her husband and circled back to rescue the woman. King says the woman was in cardiac arrest and the captain performed CPR until the boat met up with paramedics.

The woman was hospitalized. Her condition was not immediately known.
