Broward County Parasailing Accident Leaves Woman Dead

Miami, Florida Defective Product lawyers know what’s at stake when you put your trust in someone else’s product. Just this week a young Connecticut husband vacationing in Broward County, Florida, watched helplessly from high above, as his wife plummeted 200 feet to her death after a defective harness broke during what should have been an exciting parasailing experience. The couple had signed up for the ride with Wave Blast Water Sports.

While still in the air, Stephen Miskell had to be reigned in before the parasailing captain could turn the boat around to tend to Stephen’s wife, who lay face down in the ocean. Kathleen Miskell, 28 years old, was declared dead shortly thereafter at Broward Health North.

The defective harness, made of Kevlar and nylon straps, is now being held as evidence by police and a grieving family will never be the same. The experienced Miami, Fl Product Liability attorneys at Hannon Legal Group encourage everyone to exercise caution in resort activities. Equipment should always be inspected for defects and worn straps and harnesses before each use.
