The operator of Jet Ski Hits Two in Water
On May 2, 2020, Jonathan Liggett and his 8-year-old daughter, Madison, were in the water at Dog River in Mobile, Alabama, waiting to wakeboard when a speeding jet ski started coming directly toward them. They tried to yell at the operator of the jet ski, and Jonathan held his wakeboard in the air to avoid being hit but to no avail. Jonathan quickly pushed his daughter underwater in an attempt to prevent life-threatening injuries. Madison still sustained a fractured right hand, lacerations to her face, right hand, and left elbow as well as several bruises all over her body. Jonathan suffered injuries to his hands and knee. Both were wearing life jackets in the water.
