A Frankston South man was flown to Royal Melbourne Hospital following a serious skiing accident on Saturday.
Police believe the man, in his 50s, was skiing behind a boat opposite Merool Caravan Park about 7.20pm Saturday.
They believe the man’s vision was obscured by the sun as he attempted to round a bend as he was skiing downstream towards Torrumbarry.
‘‘Witnesses say the man took the turn around the bend very wide and collided with some debris and small trees in the shallows,’’ a NSW police spokesperson said.
The man suffered severe lacerations to his right thigh, as well as multiple smaller lacerations and bruising.
Ambulance Victoria Loddon Mallee regional manager Kevin Masci said paramedics were called to treat the water-skier.
‘‘The man was taken to a pontoon where advanced life support and intensive care paramedics treated the man and decided to transport him directly from the scene to a major trauma service as per Victorian State Trauma System guidelines,’’ he said.
