A class action lawsuit has been filed against several ski boat companies, such as MasterCraft and Calabria, on behalf victims of carbon monoxide poisoning. The suit was filed in response to dozens of deaths which have been caused while the victims, more of whom are children, were bodysurfing, or "teak surfing," from ski boats. The suit claims that the companies have inadequately warned the public of the dangers of carbon monoxide, which has led to at least 93 deaths in and around boats since 1990. The body is starved of oxygen when carbon monoxide molecules bind to red blood cells, which can cause headaches, nausea, and vomiting, however at high concentrations, such as behind ski boats, the victim will not experience these early symptoms, and will instead go straight into unconsciousness.
