Multiple news sources are reporting that a sixteen year old girl vacationing in the Cayman Islands during a cruise is in a critical condition following a collision between a jet ski and a "banana boat" near Seven Mile Public Beach.
The incident occurred shortly after noon on Thursday. The local police stated that the jet ski was being ridden by a seventeen year old cruise passenger when it ran into the "banana" inflatable raft which was being towed by a power boat.
Two females, aged sixteen and twenty-four years old, were thrown from the inflatable raft. They were transported to the Cayman Islands Hospital for treatment. The twenty-four year old woman was released from the hospital, but the teenager remains in a critical condition and is apparently being airlifted here to Florida for treatment.
The newspapers covering the story indicate that all three people involved in the incident were cruise ship passengers.
So far, there is no indication regarding the name of the cruise ship or whether this was a cruise sponsored excursion.
