2 die in parasailing accident in Mayan Riviera

Recommended Posts

How sad. I would never do it though, well, not on vacation. When we went to a DW last year in Jamaica, the resort we were at warned us up and down not to do it, because none of the operators had the proper insurance if there was an accident. It sounded like a lot of them didn't have insurance...so now I wonder where ever I go just how responsible those people really are.

Yes, Jacqueline, you read it correctly. The captain did flee the scene, but was later taken into custody (after being found in a marina in another town). I never heard what happened to him, but I hope he is in jail. As for the companies having insurance, I wouldn't count on it. You sign a waiver releasing them from any responsiblity, in most cases. I'm no lawyer, so not sure if you could sue them and win. Regardless, a law suit won't bring these poor ladies back. On a good note though, I rarely hear of accidents like this. Unfortunately, when they do occur, they are horrific.
