US tourist in critical condition in Cayman Islands

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico—A 16-year-old girl from New York state is in critical condition after a jet ski collided with the banana boat on which she was riding in the Cayman Islands.

A police official who was not allowed to be named under department policy said Saturday that the unidentified girl will soon be airlifted to a hospital in Florida. Authorities said the banana boat that the teenager and a 24-year-old woman were riding on Thursday collided with a jet ski driven by a 17-year-old boy. The woman was released from the hospital.

Police said all three involved in the collision were cruise ship passengers.

The official did not know the girl’s hometown and had no further details on how the collision occurred.
