The incident took place Saturday afternoon on a popular beach in the coastal resort of Puerto Escondido. The beach is famous among Mexicans, expats and travelers from all over the world, including among many surfers. It has come to be known as one of the world’s leading surf destinations.
The victim has been identified as Ursula Hernandez from Mexico City. She was rushed to a nearby hospital after the horrific fall but was pronounced dead there.
The other unnamed parascender, was just on holiday in the region. The tourist received treatment but her injuries were not regarded as serious.
Local reports said both parascender hired their equipment from the same company which made them sign a document which absolved them of any blame in case of an accident.
A local journalist is even doubtful that anyone will be held accountable for the accident as no one regulates such types of services in the country.
