    Tammy Perreault (63) killed after a loose beach umbrella impaled her in the chest

    A beachgoer was killed on Wednesday after a loose beach umbrella impaled her in the chest, authorities said.

    The umbrella was blown from its anchoring by the wind around 12.40pm and hit Tammy Perreault while she was at a Garden City beach in South Carolina, the Horry county chief deputy coroner Tamara Willard told news outlets.

    Perreault, 63, died about an hour later at the hospital from chest trauma, Willard said.
    Beach umbrellas have a spiked end to help push them into the sand and their wide canopy allows them to get caught up in a strong wind if they are not anchored properly, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

    The federal agency estimates about 3,000 people are injured by beach umbrellas every year.

    The US senators Tim Kaine and Mark Warner of Virginia asked the safety agency to review safety rules for beach umbrellas and start a safety campaign after a Virginia woman was killed by an umbrella in 2016.

    This smacks of either "Final Destination" or "1000 Ways To Die". Could you imagine this being your COD? I kind of want to go out crazy like this. Death happens to everyone. It might as well be interesting instead of the usual like Cancer or a Heart Attack.

    Yeah, I get that. I feel horrible for people with cancer who suffer for years and years. It's better to burn out than to fade away.
