Two young British holidaymakers have been killed in a freak parasailing accident, and a third injured, on the island of Rhodes, in Greece, according to reports.

The two fatally-injured youngsters 'were found dead on the rocks near the city of Lindos in Rhodes, ' the Greek coastguard announced.

The trio are believed to have been parasailing in a coastal area believed to be near to the fishing village of Lindos, in south east Rhodes - a popular family holiday resort. The rope attached to the boat snapped and they were thrown against the rocks on an islet. The two teens who died in the incident are cousins.

A 13-year-old boy and the 15-year-old girl were killed while the surviving boy is in a "serious condition with multiple injuries" in a hospital in Rhodes.

One of the two brothers, aged 13, and his cousin, a 15-year old girl, were declared dead at the State Hospital of Rhodes.

An investigation is ongoing but eyewitness accounts suggest the rope snapped in high winds, leading the three teenagers to fall onto craggy rocks from an altitude of about 400 ft.
