Powerful Winds Cause Parasailing Vessels to Capsize

Last night’s powerful winds caused six parasailing vessels to capsize on Presque Isle bay last night.

Around 7:15, Erie firefighters were called to the scene, after three vessels had reportedly capsized. Erie County 911, however, says a total of six vessels were involved.

15 people were pulled from the bay; eight were already on shore when the fire department arrived.

The Coast Guard says the other seven were onboard other boats.

No injuries were reported.
