Kitesurfing death at St Kilda

A kitesurfer was found in serious difficulty floating in the water at St Kilda on Friday 19 November. Some kiters on the scene rendered immediate first aid and CPR.  The ambulance took him to hospital, but reports today indicated that he later died. The cause may have been a cardiac arrest.

Great work from those who helped on the scene.  Its good to see kitesurfers looking after each other.  If you see someone in difficulty its always worth checking them out.

Condolences to his family.
