  1. I feel sorry for the person that is assisting police with investigations. Imagine a cruise ship passenger was not even badly affected sometime around 2016, yet he was able to receive $10 million from Tapion Hospital. That death will teach Jet Ski owners a terrible lesson. After the Jet Ski insurance is totally paid out, the Jet Ski owner will be sued for the balance. How sad, but lessons will be learnt by all and sundry, for the betterment and safety of future sea bathers

  2. So its not only the highway, its the open sea? looks like the safest place is your bedroom. Where at sea can you put up speed limits, stop signs, no overtaking, no stopping, speed bumps galore; wow, how times have changed; I remember the times when there were no Hotels anywhere at Reduit, we used to row to Pigeon Island to buy Ice cream from Mrs Snowball, an older English lady who lived on the Island in the days of civility and respect. What do we have now? A circus – the Cemetery that was is gone – we have Hotels. Who created that mess? they say lots of work but only to those who want to; ‘pity’

  3. # The fox
    We not safe in our bedroom Any more you have to sleep with one eye 👁 open one eye closed because you never know who will come in and shoot when you’re sleeping…

  4. may she rest in peace, what about the name of the jet ski killer, what’s that man’s name?

  5. The sea doos at reduit neach are oit of control. During our stay we witnessed 3 people hot and almost killed-bad for tourists makes us nervous in the water. When is someone gonna do something about it‼️‼️‼️

  6. A woman is killed another injured and a very close call, and yet the jet ski’s are still out there. How many incidents does it take before something is done. The owners and drivers need to be held accountable. Ban the jet ski’s.
    As long as the owners are being paid they do not care what the driver is doing.
    Even the other water sports going up and down the beaches are getting dangerous for swimmers and people snorkling.

    The regulations state:
    Stay 150m from shorelines and moored boats.

    The link for the regulations by country is posted in a previous comment

    There are plenty of other activities that tourist’s can do.
