Man airlifted to GC Hospital after jet ski accident at Jumpinin Bar

A man has been airlifted to the Gold Coast University Hospital after being hit in the head by a jet ski at Jumpinpin Bar.

The 47-year-old Logan man had been riding with friends at around midday yesterday when he fell off the jet ski.

His friends noticed he was struggling in the water and another jet ski rider came in to help.


After being pulled to safety, a wave washed both riders into the water. One of the jet skis hit the original victim in the head. Friends helped him to shore before calling Triple-0.

The RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter was first on the scene and assessed the victim for head and neck injuries before paramedics came in to help.

He was airlifted to the Gold Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.
