(July 28, 2017) A 16-year-old boy was airlifted to Peninsula Regional Medical Center last Friday to be treated for injuries he suffered after he and a passenger crashed a Jet Ski in the Assawoman Bay.

The Philadelphia teen’s condition was unknown as of this week, said Maryland Natural Resources Police Public Information Officer Candy Thomson. The 13-year-old passenger was uninjured.

The two teenagers ran the watercraft aground in a marshy area of Assawoman Bay around 2:02 p.m. Thomson said that the investigation showed that operator error caused the crash.

“The rescue was difficult because of the low tide, because we couldn’t send a boat in there as we normally would,” she said.
