A new law mandating several safety measures for the parasailing industry went into effect on October 1.
The White-Miskell Act is named for Kathleen Miskell and Amber White. They lost their lives in two separate parasailing accidents in Pompano Beach.
Miskell died in 2012, and White died in 2007.
"It was so tragic and so unfortunate and so unnecessary," says Delray Beach State Senator Maria Sachs.
