Two tourists visiting the Côte d’Azur from the north of France were injured on Monday when the jet ski on which they were preparing a jaunt was hit hard by another machine.

The incident took place on Monday, August 28, in the late afternoon off Saint-Laurent-du-Var, near Antibes. A father and his nine-year-old daughter were struck by a second machine that had not respected the necessary security clearance between the two jet skis. It appears that the second vehicle suddenly accelerated.

The little girl was taken to hospital in Nice suffering from several fractures in the left leg. Her father said: “I am still shocked … This person has no conscience and what happened is unacceptable.”
