Back in August 28, 2009 Cynthia Woodcock and Lorrie Shoup went parasailing in the waters of Ocean Isle Beach.
Their trip took a deadly turn when serve weather and high winds caused the towline to snap. The women were left to fight for their lives as they were dragged through the rough water by the parasail.
At approximately 1:40 p.m., Povazan directed the deckhand to use a parachute labeled for maximum wind speeds of 12 mph. The deckhand placed the two victims into the parasailing equipment and pushed them off of the vessel.
The captain of the boat involved in the parasailing death of two women in Ocean Isle Beach faces federal charges.
