2 Seriously Injured in Parasailing Crash

Panama City Beach -

Two girls from Indiana are in critical condition after a parasail crashed in Panama City Beach.

The Bay County Sheriff's Office reports that a parasail had been attached to a boat Monday afternoon when the line broke. One victim dropped into the Gulf of Mexico and was rescued. The News Herald reports that two other people continued on until the parasail crashed into a nearby parking lot.

Video captured by a bystander shows the parachute crashing so hard into the side of a condo, that the metal rail is bent and distorted from the force.

After they crashed into the building, witnesses say they were lifted back into the air, crashed into power lines, and plummeted into two cars below.

The victims have been identified as Sidney Good and Alexis Fairchild.

They remain in critical condition.
