PHUKET — An Australian man plunged to his death Wednesday afternoon after a parasailing accident on Kata Beach in front of more than a 100 onlookers.
Operators told police the 70-year-old man confused the ropes on his parasail and pulled on a hook which unstrapped his harness, causing him to fall to the sea below. He was taken to Patong hospital, where he later died.
