A man has suffered a catastrophic injury during a crash between a jet ski and a speedboat.
The man who was a passenger on the jet ski at the time of the accident was flown by plane to a hospital in Southampton after suffering a series of serious injuries.
The incident occurred at St Brelade’s Bay off the coast of Jersey and the Jersey Police have launched an investigation, urging any witnesses to come forward and contact them.
The mother of the jet ski passenger said: “he’s suffered a catastrophic, life-changing injury” and it’s going to be a “huge struggle for him to walk again”.
The mother also praised the critical care doctor and nurse in Jersey who accompanied son by plane to the hospital.
The driver of the speedboat who is suspected of driving recklessly was arrested shortly after the collision but was later released on bail by the Jersey Police pending further investigation.
