Investigation continues in Ocean Isle parasailing accident

The Coast Guard continues to investigate an accident Friday at Ocean Isle beach that killed two parasailers. The Associated Press reports the two women killed were 56-year-old Lorrie Shoup of Colorado, and 60-year-old Cynthia Woodcock of Kernersville. Witnesses told WWAY it looked like the pair were having problems when the wind picked up. Then, witnesses said, the rope holding the parasail to the boat disconnected, and the women wound up hitting a pier.

RIP Ladies

my heart goes out to the families, but surely, the business owner checks the weather forecast often & w/Danny along the coast, it was just a plain bad idea to have these ladies go out. Even the news media clearly stated that winds would be strong....

Cynthia was my cousin and

Cynthia was my cousin and this is a tough day for our family. But we want to thank the community of Ocean Isle Beach for your thoughts and prayers.
