Water sports accidents
Water sports can be dangerous as even professionals have accidents, some of which are fatal.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) published a report carried out for them by Greenstree Berman Ltd, which stated that approximately 39% of recorded deaths arising from accidents were the result of water sports’ accidents.
Eurosafe, the European Child Safety Alliance reports that in Europe, between 14,000 and 47,000 injuries occur in boating and water sports accidents every year. They estimate that people who use jet skis or wave runners (personal watercraft- PWCs) are 8.5 times more likely to be injured than people on boats.
If you hire water sports equipment while on holiday abroad, you should receive adequate training in how to use it before you set off to sea. You should have instruction and practise how to use equipment before going it alone. You should also check the equipment you hire to ensure it is not defective in any way.
