LAKE ELSINORE (CNS) – A jet ski rider was fatally injured during a recreational outing on Lake Elsinore, authorities said Monday.

The victim, whose identity was not immediately released, died Sunday night after he was taken to Inland Valley Medical Center in Wildomar.

According to Riverside County sheriff’s Sgt. Brad Foster, the man was riding a jet ski with a friend when they were involved in a water-borne “collision” about 6:55 p.m. Sunday.

The victim suffered a “medical emergency” while being treated at the launch, and he was taken to the hospital by ambulance, according to the sergeant.

The man was pronounced dead on arrival.
