Kite Tube Accidents

In 2005, a product known as the Wego Kite Tube was released through mail order catalogs for purchase by the general public. These products were meant to be towed behind motorized watercrafts – typically power boats – for recreational purposes. This large, inflatable, and circular device proved to be quite dangerous, however, because some users experienced the product flipping over mid-ride and pushing the occupants into the water with a great deal of force.

Because the product proved early on to be so dangerous, it was recalled in July of 2006 in an effort to prevent future injury or even death. About 19,000 kite tubes were asked to be returned to the manufacturer.
