On August 12, 2016, a 22 year old Pennsylvania woman suffered severe abdominal injuries when she fell from a 2016 Kawasaki Jet Ski in Ocean City and was struck by the high-pressure water stream from the vessel.
Nathalie Basunga, 22, of Swarthmore, was a passenger aboard the watercraft that was traveling at about 20 to 25 knots in the Isle of Wight Bay near Swordfish Basin when she slipped off the stern of the vessel.
The operator, John Thompson, 44, of Wilmington, De., said his passenger began complaining of internal pain soon after the fall so they went to Thunder Island and he called 911. Basunga was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center by Ocean City first responders.
Ms. Basunga is being represented by the Mazzola Law Firm, PLLC.
