Two Girls Suffer Critical Injuries after a Parasailing Accident

On Tuesday, July 2, 2013 two teenagers from Indiana were critically injured after a parasailing accident gone wrong. The two teenagers, both 17 years-old, were parasailing when their line snapped. The teenagers were sent flying. They smashed into a nearby building, carried a power line and crashed into several cars in a parking lot

. Only one of the teens was conscious when rescuers arrived. They were transported to a nearby hospital.

Unfortunately, many onlookers witnessed the gruesome incident, but could not do anything to stop them. The boat tried to retrieve them, but a gust of wind from a storm was too strong and sent them off. The two teenagers are currently in critical condition. The captain of the boat is a 30 year-old male and the company that owns the boat is Aquatic Adventures. The two girls were listed as in critical condition when taken to the hospital.

Type of Injuries They May Have

One of the girls had surgery on her head and back. She was able to walk with a walker and the help of a physical therapist. She underwent surgery on her spine to repair her extensive injuries.

The other girl is suffering from traumatic brain injury as well as a broken neck. She also has a severe laceration on her leg. The victim had to undergo surgery to alleviate the swelling of her brain and remove a blood clot. Doctors say she is too unstable to do anything about her broken neck.

Company Fails to Provide Adequate Safety

Unfortunately, one attorney reports that this isn’t the first time that the company’s negligence has caused severe injury. The company had two earlier reports of people suffering severe injury. In one instance, the rope broke during a parasailing accident that flung two teens into the ocean. Another person was run over by a jet ski owned by the company.
