Girl injured as rubber ring crashes into yacht

Just saw this on YBW.
Towing inflatable toys is great fun but can also be very dangerous.

I launched from there (SYH) the same day, and it was pretty busy. I didn't see the incident, I had gone off elsewhere, and returned a couple of hours after it happened. I have seen some pretty hair-raising driving in the waterski area, it's not somewhere I would be comfortable being on a busy Sunday.
