Plettenberg Bay - A man has been killed in a jet ski accident in Eerste River, near Plettenberg Bay, the National Sea Rescue Institute said on Monday.

The 53-year-old Pretoria man was on holiday when the accident happened, said spokesman Craig Lambinon.

The man was negotiating a wave when his jet ski was launched into the air and presumably hit his head.

He was brought to shore by rescuers and was declared dead on the scene. - Sapa
