Jet skier dies in crash

A 20-year-old man died Sunday afternoon in a Wave Runner accident at the Sound Sound dock, Royal Cayman Islands police said.

The accident occurred late Sunday and police said it appeared the man had collided with the dock. 

He suffered severe head injuries in the crash and was later pronounced dead at the Cayman Islands hospital.

The victim was identified as Mark Lopez.

The Bull Run Jet Ski race was canceled on Monday afternoon because of the weather and also out of respect for Mr. Lopez, organisers said. The race has been postponed until 24 July.

It was not known whether rough sea conditions played a role in Sunday’s Wave Runner accident.
