Michael Dunlop Jet Ski Drama (2013)

 

 

On Saturday evening Michael Dunlop decided not to attend the Billown races but instead relax after his TT race week.

All the drama started just off Douglas Head after Michael Dunlop and one of his sponsors and close friend Martin Marlow took out a jet ski to sea from Loch Promenade. They were messing about on the water about half a mile off shore while Michael was driving the jet ski his friend grabbed him by the neck and they both fell off the back of it.

Both men tried to get aboard the jet ski but found it difficult as they thought it was sinking under their weight.

Neither man was believed to be wearing life jackets so they used the jet ski to hang onto to keep afloat.

Friends onshore were unaware of the dilemma at sea but raised the alarm when they failed to return.

The RNLI rescued the pair and when they returned back to shore it is believed they got a serious telling off by the Harbour Police.
