A very serious incident happened Tuesday evening at Sunset Beach, North Carolina when a kite struck a beachgoer in the head. The incident happened at around 5:10 pm near 32nd Street. According to the limited information available, a kite used for kite surfing hit the beachgoer causing a very severe neck injury.
While this is certainly an unusual situation, it would seem that anyone operating such a kite has a duty to keep the kite under control. In this case, the victim would appear to have a claim against anyone responsible for the kite.
