A man was rescued from the Nepean River after falling from his jet ski yesterday, thanks largely to the quick thinking of a friend and two other members of the public.
Shortly before 5pm, Thursday, March 14 a 50-year-old man was riding his jet ski with several friends on the at Jamistown.
The man was riding a jet ski and towing two other people in an inflatable tube.
Police have been told that the man suffered a seizure and fell into the river where he was initially assisted by a friend.
Emergency services were contacted and arrived soon after.
Two members of the public who were fishing in a small boat nearby were able to convey two police officers and an Ambulance Paramedic to the jet ski.
An Ambulance helicopter assisted by guiding the group to the shore and then airlifted the man to Nepean Hospital where he underwent medical checks and scans. The man is in a stable condition.
Police have thanked the members of the public for their assistance with the rescue and will commence the process to recognise their efforts formally.
