A man has been airlifted to hospital after being involved in a jet ski accident this afternoon (Sunday).

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Kingsbury Water Park, Sutton Coldfield, just before 12pm and sent an ambulance and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a man, believed to be in his 50s, who had fallen off an inflatable whilst being pulled by a jet ski.

“After being assessed he was treated for central neck pain, given pain relief and fully immobilised with the use of a neck collar and spinal board.

“He was then taken by land ambulance to the awaiting air ambulance which had landed nearby before being airlifted to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further assessment and treatment.”
