Mission Bay Tubing Accident Kills Man I San Diego PWC Accident

By Ross Jurewitz on July 28, 2011

Mission Bay Tubing AccidentA man died Sunday‚ July 24‚ 2011 at about 5:50 p.m. after an inner-tube accident on Mission Bay. The victim had been riding a water device called a biscuit that was being towed behind a person watercraft (PWC) at Ski Beach.

The man went under the water and could not be found. 10 minutes later‚ the man’s lifeless body was found. Lifeguards say that the man had been wearing a life jacket but was found without it. They believe the device was too small and improperly fastened‚ deeming it useless. In addition‚ the floating device was not properly inflates and had broken apart while it was being towed.

Authorities are unsure of the true cause of the wrongful death of the victim but think that he may have been entangled in the tow rope and dragged underwater. A detailed investigation will reveal the exact cause.

As for now‚ the family members of the deceased victim is advised to contact a San Diego personal watercraft accident attorney immediately to learn about their legal rights and options. Drowning accidents involving jet skis are extremely common and almost always preventable. The PWC operator or equipment rental company may be held responsible for the death of the victim and fined for the medical costs‚ funeral expenses‚ loss of wages‚ and loss of love.
