Ocala-area teen in Pompano parasail accident dies

FORT LAUDERDALE - Members of Amber White's family came Monday to say goodbye, as they gave up hope the 15-year-old girl would recover from injuries suffered in a parasailing accident over the weekend off Pompano Beach. "She's passed on," said James Day, Amber's stepfather, seated in the dimly lit seventh-floor waiting room of the pediatric intensive care unit at Broward General Medical Center. "She was declared clinically dead Sunday at about 6 p.m. She's still on life support, just to say goodbye." ======================================= Some say more regulation is needed. This does appear to be an industry that is lax and that has had some safety problems. Dwayne
