Girl injured at sea

visitorinjuredwatersportsPolice are this evening investigating an incident on a flotation device at sea that led to the injury of two girls.

Police Public Relations Officer, Inspector David Welch said around 12:30 p.m., three 14-year-old girls were riding on the flotation device towed by a speed boat driven by Shane Watson of Haynesville, St. James, when they fell off.

Initial reports are that two of the girls bumped their heads together during the fall, causing one of them to lose consciousness.

Watson reportedly performed CPR on the unconscious girl who subsequently regained consciousness before the two girls were taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital where they were both detained with the one who was more seriously injured now under observation.

The third girl was reportedly not injured during the incident. Police said their investigations were still continuing.
