Two jet skis were involved in a collision near Brighton Palace Pier that injured a woman, the RNLI says.

The Coast Guard, lifeboat crews, police and ambulance attended the accident, which happened around 3pm yesterday afternoon.

The Coastguard helicopter circled along the Brighton seafront and a rescuer dropped onto a winch to help the woman, who was on a jet ski.

She was then taken to the marina by lifeboat and placed in an ambulance to be taken to the hospital.

Rescue workers carried the woman on a stretcher to the waiting ambulance.

A police spokesman said yesterday that the incident involved a jet ski and a rigid inflatable boat – the two people were known to each other.

But this morning an RNLI spokeswoman confirmed the crash happened between two jet skis.

She said: “The Brighton lifeboat was tasked at 2.57pm to bring in a report of a collision involving two jet skis south of Brighton Palace Pier.

“Upon arrival, the volunteer crew found a female victim in the water.

“The patrol boat of the lifeguards of the city administration was also on site. A personal assessment was carried out.

“The lifeboat was then joined by a Lydd rescue helicopter, which lowered its paramedic and special equipment onto the lifeboat.

“In a joint effort the victim was then placed on the lifeboat and then transported to Brighton Marina as a secamb [South East Coast Ambulance] took care of the casualty.”
