Plettenberg Bay - A man has been killed in a jet ski accident in Eerste River, near Plettenberg Bay, the National Sea Rescue Institute said on Monday.

The 53-year-old Pretoria man was on holiday when the accident happened, said NSRI spokesperson Craig Lambinon.

The man was negotiating a wave when his jet ski was launched into the air and presumably hit his head.

He was brought to shore by rescuers and was declared dead on the scene.

    I double doubt that the man was jetskiing off the coast since the article says that he was in Eerste rivier

      Eerste rivier is a coastal village in the Tsitsikama. The "river" is only a smal stream. Agree with Watchman. Dont know where he launched, but the water over there is not to play in. May he rest in peace
