Lifeguard hit by jet ski in North Myrtle Beach


A lifeguard in North Myrtle Beach suffered minor injuries when a jet ski, idling at the time, hit him in the ribs.


The lifeguard was assisting in an ocean rescue near 17th Avenue South when he was hit around 1:20 p.m. Monday.

He was assisting Myrtle Beach Water Sports, which had been called to the rescue.


It appears a wave may have pushed the idling jet ski into the lifeguard, according to North Myrtle Beach spokesman Pat Dowling.


The lifeguard was taken to the hospital.


We're told by a witness at the scene that he swallowed a lot of water.
