A parasailing adventure of a mother and her two kids from Illinois has ended in tragedy in the Florida Keys on Tuesday night.
The 33-year-old mother from Schaumburg, Illinois, died, and her two children were injured when their parasail was cut loose, dragging them through the ocean and slamming them into a bridge during a sudden storm.
The U.S Coast Guard said a nearby boater who saw the incident hit the water and rushed to rescue them, pulling the victims into his boat and taking them to wait for paramedics.
However, the mother had already died when they arrived at the nearby Sunset Grill Marina.
Meanwhile, the victim’s son and 9-year-old nephew were taken to hospitals for treatment.
