Teenage victim of Pompano parasail accident dies

Shitty vacation...


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."

The hospital later Monday removed Amber from life support and declared her dead, said administrative supervisor Tony Tutterow.

As Day spoke, another family member was on a cell phone giving directions to relatives trying to find the hospital from Interstate 95. Amber's mother, Shannon Kraus, was by her child's bed down the hall, he said. Amber's 16th birthday

  • Heart breaking to lose a child. I have great respect for the family as they gave a great gift of donating their daughter's organs so others may live. Great generosity while enduring such a loss of their loved one.
