Roger John Hussey fell from his harness and plunged into the ocean yesterday as his wife, Budsabong Thongsangka, filmed from Kata Beach below, Bangkok Post reports.
In footage of the horror moment, Mr Hussey and a parasailing crew member can be seen being pulled into the air by a boat with the Perth businessman’s leg straps not appearing to be properly secured.

The 71-year-old soared through the air for a few moments before slipping from his harness in front of hundreds of beachgoers.
Despite people racing into the water to pull Mr Hussey to shore, he died at short time later in hospital.
Thai police have charged the boat operator Monthian Jandaeng over the Australian's death, local media reports.
Karon Police Station Lieutenant Suwisit Keereerak said officers had launched an official investigation into the accident.
Mr Hussey and his wife were holidaying in Chiang Mai and had visited Phuket before their scheduled flight back to Australia today.

In the video of Hussey exiting this life, you can see that the boat operator started off to soon, and for some reason Somchai held on to the lines and went airborne too. Then the idiot panicked and climbed onto Hussey's shoulders. That's when the harness broke and Hussey went splat! Some foolks should go to prison over this, but that won't bring back the Aussie.

Two of us, double harness. Was fun.
No intentions of doing it again.
