Woman Killed After Beach Umbrella Swept By Wind Stabbed Her In The Chest

A woman has died after a beach umbrella struck her in the chest.


Tammy Perreault was visiting Garden City beach in South Carolina on Wednesday, August 10.


While there, a beach umbrella was blown from its anchoring by strong winds and it impaled Ms Perreault, Horry County chief deputy coroner Tamara Willard said.




Off-duty medical professionals desperately tried to treat the 63-year-old as they awaited an ambulance.


She was rushed to hospital following the incident but she died an hour later from chest trauma.


Thomas Bell, a spokesperson for Horry County emergency management, said the community was “hurting’” following the “terrible loss”.


Locals and businesses in the area have paid tribute on Facebook.
