“I am in shock, I have been crying all day. Suddenly there was a loud noise and at that time the belt was cut without understanding how. I myself was a shipwreck and I might have drowned if the boat that picked us up had not been found. I don’t know how the accident happened, the only reason I can attribute it to is the sudden wind.”
This is what the operator of the boat from which the strap of the sea parachute was attached to, which broke and resulted in the tragic death of a woman who was parasailing in Sivota, told SKAI.
