National Sea Rescue Institute’s spokesman
Craig Lambinon said the 53-year-old Pretoria man was on holiday
when the accident happened.
The man was negotiating a wave when his jet
ski was launched into the air and presumably hit his head.
said the man launched his jet ski on the beach at Eerste River between Plettenberg Bay and Oyster bay in the Eastern Cape.
Lambinon adds that when the man went over the second wave it appears that
the jet ski went into the air and NSRI suspects the man hit his head when the
jet ski landed on the other side.
The man was recovered from the water,
bystanders and an NSRI volunteer attempted CPR but when the ambulance services
arrived on the scene paramedics declared the man dead.
