Jet skier feared drowned in Licking



The Cincinnati Enquirer

TAYLOR MILL - Rescuers were searching the Licking River early this morning for a 40-year-old Covington man feared drowned after he went into the water while jet skiing.

The man, who was not identified, and his family launched the watercraft about 8:30 p.m. at the Locust Park Boat Ramp, according to Phil Harney, a sergeant with Kenton County police.

"He lost control after he got in the water,'' Harney said. "He was not wearing a life vest. He did not know how to swim.''

Harney said more than 30 rescue personnel assisted in the search, including members of the Campbell County Water Rescue unit. Harney said the search would continue indefinitely.
