Very sad news out of South Carolina as a woman has died after being struck by a beach umbrella. The incident happened in Garden City Wednesday afternoon. The woman, Tammy Perault was taken to the hospital and died from her injuries a short time later. ABC15 News reports that the umbrella was picked up by the wind which caused it to hit Perault. It seems that she was a local in the Garden City community as a heartfelt Facebook message was posted by a local beach bar in her memory.
I’ve never liked beach umbrellas and thought they were more of a hassle than their worth. But I never thought they could accidentally be deadly. RIP to this woman and keep her family and friends in your prayers as they suffer through this unexpected loss.
