British teens killed in parasailing accident in Rhodes

Two British teens have died and a third is fighting for their life, after a parasailing accident on the Greek island of Rhodes on Wednesday.

According to reports, the three teens were hanging onto a parachute pulled by a boat but the rope broke and they were thrown against rocks on an islet.

“A 13-year-old girl and a young man of 15 were found dead on the rocks near the city of Lindos in Rhodes,” the Hellenic Coast Guard‘s press office said.

Firefighters and paramedics also found another 15-year-old with serious injuries in the same area and transferred him to a hospital in Rhodes. He was put into a medically induced coma.

Authorities have opened an investigation into the cause of the accident.
