JET BOAT ACCIDENT
Two people were injured when a jet boat flipped on the Hurunui River on Saturday. The incident happened near Hurunui Rd and Blacks Rd at about 12pm. A police spokeswoman said it appeared the incident was ‘‘relatively minor’’. A Rescue Coordination Centre New Zealand spokeswoman said emergency services were notified of the accident when the pair set off a beacon. An adult and a child were involved and both received minor injuries, she said. They were flown to Christchurch Hospital by the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
