Woman Seriously Injured In Jet Ski Accident

Amistad National Recreation Area

National Park News

On September 14th, rangers responded to a jet ski accident on the Devils River. Two sisters, ages 60 and 61, were riding jet skis when one turned to look towards a cliff with Indian rock art on it and ran into the other. The rangers arrived to find her still in the water with significant facial injuries. Supervisory park ranger Steve Krisko and ranger Matt Gilbert entered the water to put her on a backboard, while ranger Andrew Sanford maneuvered the patrol boat to load her for transport. She was stabilized and taken by boat to the Rough Canyon boat ramp, where a waiting ambulance took her to the Val Verde County Regional Hospital.
