Parasailing is a super fun activity many suffer while on vacation, though if correct precautions aren’t taken, it can simply finish in death.
Unfortunately for 71-year-old Roger John Hussey, an Australian businessman visiting Phuket, Thailand, final week, he became a comfortless instance of what happens when harnesses aren’t scrupulously cumulative — and when a beam jumps on for a float but any reserve rigging whatsoever.
Though Hussey was propitious with harnesses around his physique beforehand, a straps around his bottom half didn’t seem to be connected to anything.
Pair that with a beam grabbing onto a ropes and holding off with him and it became an awful recipe for disaster. Though a male was clearly risking his life, it’s apparently a common attempt that parasail operators lift in Phuket.
When it comes to Thailand, reserve measures aren’t always enforced, and some operators aren’t even certified. At slightest one of a dual played a purpose in this incident, that led to Hussey descending out of his harness.
