Jet ski crash victim returns home

News | Published:

AN Islander who nearly lost a leg in a jet ski accident last month has returned to Jersey after receiving specialist treatment in the UK.

Lawyer Giles Corbin suffered multiple leg injuries when the jet ski he was a passenger on was in collision with a speedboat in St Brelade's Bay.

The boat driver was arrested on suspicion of reckless driving before being released on bail pending further inquiries.

In a Facebook post Mr Corbin (45) said: 'I can't tell you how wonderful it feels to be home.

'Absolute tranquillity and calmness relative to the 24/7 frenetically busy shared post-trauma bay wards in Salisbury,' he said.

'Whilst this is an important milestone I still have a very long way to go on regaining flexibility and function in my left leg,' added Mr Corbin, who is due to return to the UK for a scan next month.
