New details released in Ocean Isle Beach parasailing accident

OCEAN ISLE BEACH, N.C. | Two women who died in a parasail accident off Ocean Isle Beach Friday died of blunt trauma, not drowning, an N.C. medical examiner said this afternoon. Dr. William Kelly, regional pathologist for the N.C. Medical Examiner's office in Jacksonville, N.C., said the women may have died when they first hit the water, when they hit the parasail tow boat that was trying to rescue them or when their parasail became entangled in the Ocean Isle Beach pier. One of the women, Cynthia Woodcock, 60, of Kernersville, N.C., was to be memorialized at a service today in nearby High Point, N.C., and buried Wednesday in Lenoir, N.C., her hometown.
