Jet ski accident victim rescued
Maryland Natural Resources Police say they rescued a 16-year-old involved in a jet ski accident in the Sinepuzent Bay.
NRP officers said they responded to the report of a boating accident Wednesday evening and discovered one person unconscious after being ejected from a jet ski. Officers said a 17-year-old had been operating a jet ski in an erratic manner and caused his passenger, the 16-year-old victim, to be ejected into the water. The teen was then struck by another jet ski, operated by a 20-year-old woman from Carlisle, Pa.
Maryland State Police later airlifted the 16-year-old to Peninsula Regional Medical Center.
The accident comes on the heels of an accident Saturday in Talbot County in which an 11-year-old operating a personal water craft was seriously injured by a 12-year-old on another PWC. Under Maryland law, an operator of a PWC must be at least 16 years of age and must have completed a boating safety course.
