The Orlando Sentinel reported today that the the 15 year-old girl from the Ocala area who was injured in the parasailing accident over the week-end died early Sunday evening. The young teen, who would have been 16 on Sunday, was removed from life-support and her parents donated her organs to save the lives of others.
As more details became available, it was noted that the National Weather Service had warned boaters that there were high winds and thunderstorms off-shore 40 minutes before the two sisters set out on the boat operated by Island Waves Parasailing.. The Broward County Sheriffs report stated the cause of the accident to be “careless/reckless” operation, as well as failure of the equipment and bad weather. Although the Sheriff’s investigation is still on-going, it was noted that the boat operator may be charged in the case.
