CLEARWATER BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A Georgia woman has died days after a parasail's tether detached from a boat during a Florida vacation.
Alejandra White and Shaun Ladd were injured Sept. 5 when the tether between a towboat and passenger harness broke, sending Ladd into the water and White crashing into the beach on a runaway parachute. White was dragged behind the chute through beach umbrellas and into a post on a volleyball court.
A spokesman from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said the 27-year-old died Saturday.
Her fiance, Ladd, was not seriously injured. The two were from the Atlanta area.
The Coast Guard, Clearwater police and other agencies are investigating.
