so, 3 grownups on a jet ski - hmmm...... any regulations about that? i'm assuming the jet ski operator did not check that the women could swim, and i'm wondering if they were wearing life vests.

Yeah...... some of the more modern jet skis are three seaters. Some of them are pretty big. But like you said.... why weren't they wearing life vests??? Furthermore... why do people who can't swim very well risk going in the ocean.

A friend and I once capsized our jet ski in the ocean aswell. We had to tread water for a while until we could turn the water-craft right side up.

A sensless tragedy but it was only a matter of time. This was by the dicky mo beach which is a ghetto mess every sunday.

The POLICE need to put a presence there on Sundays!!.
