NC firms seek payout limit in parasailers’ deaths

ASH, N.C. — Two North Carolina companies have filed a complaint in federal court aimed at removing them from liability in the deaths of two women killed in a parasailing crash.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach, S.C. reported Friday that the complaint by Ocean Isle Beach Watersports and North Carolina Watersports proposes that, at the least, liability should be
limited. The companies think any potential payout should be capped at $100,000 – the value of the boat that carried the two women.

Sixty-year-old Cynthia Woodcock of Kernersville, N.C., and 55-year-old Lorrie Shoup of Granby, Colo., died Aug. 28 of trauma after the line connecting them to the boat snapped. The women fell into the water, eventually colliding with the boat and a pier.
