Just saw this on havasunews.com as breaking news.... RIP and prayers to all involved

Fatality reported at World Championships


STAFF REPORT
Friday, October 16, 2009 4:58 PM MST


One participant was pronounced dead at Havasu Regional Medical Center Friday afternoon following a three-vessel collision during a race event at the International Jet Sports Boating Association Personal Watercraft World Finals.

Because of the nature of the racing event, speed was a factor in the collision.

The name of the deceased was not released pending notification of next of kin.

Another competitor sustained minor injuries in the accident.

The Mohave County Sheriff's Department is handling the death investigation and the U.S. Coast Guard is handling the accident investigation.

More details will follow as they become known.
