Parasailing accident victim dies

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A California visitor involved in a parasailing accident off Kewalo Basin last week Sunday has died.

Police said Jack Banaszyski, of Palm Springs, was pronounced dead Friday evening.

Banaszyski was parasailing last Sunday with his partner. Witnesses said the line to the Xtreme Parasail vessel snapped. The pair then ended up in the water and were dragged about a thousand feet.

The 65-year-old Banaszyski was taken to the hospital in critical condition while the other man was not seriously hurt.

Officials said the two were on a week-long vacation in the islands.
