The family of the victims of a deadly parasailing accident is filing suit against the company that they claim is responsible for the tragedy.

WSVN.com reports that the incident occurred in late May when 33-year-old Supraja Alaparthi went parasailing near Pigeon Key with her 10-year-old son and nine-year-old nephew. During the excursion, the parasail encountered strong winds. In response the captain of the tow boat cut the line, allowing the group to be swept away in the wind. The wind swept the trio into the Seven Mile bridge.

In the lawsuit, the family argues that the pilot, working for Lighthouse Parasail, could have acted differently including attempting other maneuvers.

“There’s ways he could have tried to maneuver his vessel to deflate the sail, to regain control of not just the parasail but the vessel. Unfortunately, he did the one thing you’re not supposed to do,” the family said.
