( 4UMF NEWS ) Woman Dies Parasailing:
The boat’s operators quickly reeled Stephen Miskell in and circled back to pick up his wife, who was floating face down in the water, authorities said.
Kathleen Miskell was in cardiac arrest, and the boat crew performed CPR until they were met by paramedics ashore, firefighters said.
She was rushed to North Broward Health Center, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
The couple was from Wethersfield, where Kathleen Miskell worked for the school system and her husband own a tiling company, friends told the Herald.
“They were very nice friendly people,” Connecticut neighbor Kristy Pierce told the Sun Sentinel. “They moved in a few months ago.
“I actually just brought some cupcakes over to them when they first moved in and they were very excited, very friendly. They invited us over.”
The parasailing company, Wave Blast Water Sports, which operates out of the Sands Hotel, didn’t comment on the accident.
