Conn. Woman's Parasailing Death Raises Questions About Unregulated Sport


"These deaths aren't frequent. They're really infrequent, but two have happened in our town," King said. "The mayor has vowed that this is not going to happen again."

Miskell's death is being investigated by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), the Broward County Sheriff's Office and the U.S. Coast Guard.

"We're going to do a methodical check of each and every part of the harness, the parachute, the ropes, just to try and come to a better, clearer picture of what exactly occurred," Jorge Pino of the Florida FWC told ABC News' Miami and Ft. Lauderdale affiliate WPLG.

"Ultimately, our goal is to come up with a conclusion as to why this happened and learn from this so that this won't happen again," he said.
