On Sunday, June 28, 2015, a young boy was killed in a boating accident with a jet ski or personal watercraft on Bass Lake. The facts of the accident are not entirely clear.  ABC reported that a family had been inner-tubing on Bass Lake when two teens fell into the water.  KCRA reported that the teens had been swimming behind their family’s pontoon boat when the accident occurred. The family had put out proper flagging to warn others that there were people in the water. One boy was killed and another teen was taken by life-flight to Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno, where she was listed in critical condition with serious head injuries.

Emergency responders were quick to attempt to render aid, but the 13 yr old boy died at the scene.  The girl was transported by airlift to with serious head injuries.

Folsom Lake, Lake Berryessa, Rollins Lake – Sacramento is surrounded by scenic aquatic venues that provide the opportunity for jet skiing.  While spending an afternoon on a jet ski is most often nothing more than a fun and exciting recreational pursuit, accidents occur with alarming frequency and can result in surprisingly serious injuries or even death.   Common contributors to jet ski accidents include alcohol use, speed and inattention.  Perhaps the factor most responsible for such accidents is inexperienced operators or boaters.

Inexperienced jet skiiers – do NOT try these tricks!
