Kite Tube Injuries and Deaths Prompt Recall
39 known injures and two deaths have been attributed to the “kite tube,” which was pulled from the market on July 13th. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is performing a safety investigation.
The kite tube is a 10-foot inflatable saucer with fabric flooring. The riders stand inside the device and hold onto grips while a boat pulls them. When the boat reaches around 25 mph the kite tube rises into the air.
