POMPANO BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say a Connecticut woman who was parasailing with her husband in South Florida died after her harness broke and she plummeted as much as 200 feet into the Atlantic Ocean.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission identified the woman as 28-year-old Kathleen Miskell. Conservation Commission spokeswoman Carli Segelson said Miskell's hometown was not immediately available.
Pompano Beach spokeswoman Sandra King says Miskell was parasailing Wednesday afternoon with her husband, Stephen, when her harness broke and she fell.
King says the boat crew reeled in her husband and circled back to rescue the woman. King says the woman was in cardiac arrest and the captain performed CPR until the boat met up with paramedics. Authorities say Miskell was pronounced dead at a hospital.
The conservation commission is investigating.
