Alcohol is one of the factors which can lead to accidents—not just on the road but also while boating and enjoying the water. A 28-year old woman was seriously injured in a jet ski accident that took place on April 3, 2010 at Destin, Florida, which involved the use of alcohol.
Reportedly, the woman had been drinking before she met up with the accident that caused her to lose consciousness for 20 seconds. She was riding the jet-ski with a man on the back as a passenger when she jumped a wave and landed wrong. The man was ejected and her head hit the handlebar in front of her. She was found floating face down and had a three-inch laceration near her left eye.
Our office wishes her a quick recovery. Although alcohol was not the cause of this accident, it was a factor. This jet-ski accident could have taken a nastier turn had she not been saved and pulled out of the water before she drowned. Please be responsible when you boat and enjoy your time on the water responsibly.
