    Phuket, Thailand. July 12th, 2017

    A prominent Australian businessman has plunged to his death while parasailing in Thailand, with his wife capturing footage of the horrifying fall from the beach below.
    Roger John Hussey smiled for his wife, who filmed him as he stood on Kata Beach, in Phuket, and prepared to take part in the water sports activity on Wednesday.

    But just moments after being lifted up into the air, the 70-year-old fell more than 100 feet into the shallows below as his wife and dozens of horrified beachgoers watched on.
    Emergency services rushed Mr Hussey to the nearby Patong Hospital but he was pronounced dead a short time later.
    The Perth-based businessman and his Thai-born wife Budsabong Thongsangka were reportedly just 12 days into their dream holiday.

    Mr Hussey has had a decorated career in the business industry, as the 'CEO, director and chair of a range of Public, Government and NFP companies'.
    In 1993 he was appointed as chairman of Australia's biggest betting and gambling association, the TAB. He had also previously worked for international fuel giant Shell.

    In the wake of Mr Hussey's death, the boat operator and staff member on the parasail were reportedly both arrested and charged with recklessness leading to death.
    Lt. Col. Suwisit Keereerak, Deputy Chief Inspector of Karon Police Station, said they were now investigating the accident.
    The two staff who were charged were named as the parasailor Rungroj Rakscheep, 38, and Montien Chandeng, 45, the boat captain.

    His wife's name is epic.

    I would like to try :D But I'm neither rich nor not dumb. Nobody has a reason to kill me and I know how a harness has to be worn. Hope that increases my survival probability ;)

    He wasn't going to go parasailing but after thinking about it for 10 minutes he said, "eh, Phucket."

    A harness encases the entire body/chest/groin. What they had was a stick your arms thru the loops and hold on rig. Probably not legal.

    But people jump higher than that into water. I guess it must've been very shallow since he wasn't far off the coast? Probably had some non-lethal injury but drowned before anyone could get to him.

    A shame he was just trying to have a nice vacation!

    But... ironic how it's, of course, Thailand.

    Does everyone not care to mention the fucking little Thai guy that jumped on his back and stayed hanging on?!?... Maybe his wife payed him to unstrap him to collect life insurance.

    Just seems extremely odd... Why was he on his back? Why didn't they both fall?

    Look carefully at how the harness worked. It was nothing more than two loops in the rigging, nothing at all that was tied,buckled or secured. the thai guy was probably going to guide the sail.or kick the old rich guy out.

    Idk, something just doesn't seem right. The guy just seems soo out of place, again, why isn't he strapped to anything n why is he riding on his fucking back? I've never seen that before in my entire life and I've had friends go parasailing before.
