POMPANO BEACH, Fla. (AP) — South Florida authorities say a woman who was parasailing with her husband died when her harness broke and she plummeted as much as 200 feet into the Atlantic Ocean.

Pompano Beach spokeswoman Sandra King says the 28-year-old woman was parasailing Wednesday afternoon when her harness broke.

King says the boat crew reeled in her husband and circled back to get the woman. King says the woman was in cardiac arrest and the captain performed CPR until the boat met up with paramedics.

The woman's name was not released.

Clark says the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is investigating.
