(CNS): Police confirmed Wednesday that the sixteen year old girl from New York who was critically injured in an ocean collision involving a jet-ski and a banana boat has been released from hospital in Miami and has travelled back to her home. A spokesperson for the RCIPS said that enquiries into the circumstances surrounding the collision which occurred last week near the Seven mile Public Beach are on-going. The teenage girl was visiting the Cayman Islands on a cruise ship when she was involved in the smash. The seventeen year old boy who was the rider of the jet-ski was also a visiting cruise passenger.

The teenage girl was riding on the ‘banana’ with a 24-year-old woman and they were both thrown from the inflatable when they were hit by the jet-ski.

The women were taken to the Cayman Islands hospital in George Town at the time and while the  24-year-old woman was released soon after the teenager was airlifted to Miami for treatment.
