Family of Schaumburg woman who died in Florida parasailing accident to file lawsuit

CHICAGO (CBS) -- The family of a Schaumburg woman who died in a parasailing accident in South Florida last month is filing a lawsuit. Supraja Alaparthi, her son, and her nephew were in flight off Marathon, Florida when a strong gust of wind "pegged" their parasail - meaning the wind took over control of the parasail from the boat below. This made for a situation so dangerous that the captain made the difficult choice to cut the line tethered to the victims. They were dropped from an unknown height and dragged through the water by the floating parasail until it finally hit the old Seven Mile Bridge, the report said. Alaparthi, 33, died in the accident. Her son Sriakshith Alaparthi, 10, and nephew Vishant Sadda, 9, were both injured. Alaparthi's son Sriakshith's injuries were described as minor. Nephew Vishant was taken to an area hospital for additional treatment. On Tuesday, The Haggard Law Firm will announce details of a lawsuit connected to the incident.

Gianno Caldwell on murder of brother in Chicago: 'My family is paying the price' for soft-on-crime policies

Fox News' Gianno Caldwell joined "Hannity" Monday to share news about the murder of his teenage brother in Chicago. GIANNO CALDWELL: Well Sean I come here tonight as a man who feels shattered. My baby brother just turned 18. He was a good kid. And certainly knowing that living in Chicago seemingly comes with a price these days I never would’ve contended or rather expected that would come with a death sentence for my baby brother. Black bodies are being littered in the streets of Chicago, and it’s not just impacting African Americans here it’s impacting everyone. You can’t go downtown Chicago now without looking around your shoulder. You may be shot there. The truth of the matter is we need to uncuff the police and that’s what happened the policies, the soft-on-crime policies that have been pushed by many of the elected officials here are only causing more crime. They've only bared dead fruit and now my family is paying the price.

Monday night is my curling league, so here’s a bullet-point recap. (Of the Sox game. Not my game. Although we won, 8-5, if you care.) *The White Sox did not lose this game because of Lucas Giolito, who threw a quality start with an even better finish.
