Two British teenagers killed parasailing in Greece, say authorities

Two British teenagers have been killed and a third seriously injured in a parasailing incident on the Greek island of Rhodes, authorities have said.

“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 Greek coastguard’s press office said.

The coastguard and firefighters found another 15-year-old with serious injuries in the same area and took him to a hospital in Rhodes.

The three were attached to a parachute pulled by a boat but the rope broke and the wind carried them into the rocks, Greek media reported.

The authorities have opened an investigation into the cause of the incident. The boat’s captain and co-captain were being questioned by the police, the coastguard said.
