This week the Florida Senate unanimously passed Senate Bill 320 (2014), which would regulate the parasailing industry.  Parasailing is a water sport in which people wear a parachute and a harness attached to and towed by a motorboat.  Parasailing is a popular water sport offered to tourists on many of Florida’s beaches.  Unfortunately, the potential dangers of this sport have been highlighted by several catastrophic parasailing accidents in recent years.  Parasailing accidents usually result in severe personal injury or wrongful death.  An identical bill is working its way through the Florida House of Representatives.
