Viral video: Couple falls into sea during parasailing accident


A video of a couple falling into the sea after their parachute rope attached to the motorboat snapped mid-air while parasailing in India has gone viral across social media.

An Indian news agency reported that the Gujrati couple – identified as Ajit Kathad and his wife Sarla – were several metres up above the air over the sea when their parachute’s rope attached to the motorboat snapped and they fell into the water.

Kathad and his wife, who had lifejackets on, were not aware of the situation at first. The man’s brother, who was capturing the moment through his cell phone, started screaming in fright as he saw them falling without any support.

The lifeguards and safety officially immediately came to their rescue. The clip shows them being lifted off safely from the boat.

Here’s how social media reacted to the incident. They have also called for action against the adventure sports agency.

Earlier, a man tragically lost his life while on a ‘dream holiday’ while parasailing in Phuket, Thailand.

Identified as Roger Hussey, 70, he fell 100ft to his death in Phuket, Thailand, yesterday afternoon while dozens of people watched. The deceased was an Australian businessman and had arrived in Thailand for a holiday trip.

He was taken to Patong Hospital but was pronounced dead soon after arrival.;
