JET SKIS, those high-powered personal watercraft that have become so popular, look like incredible fun. But they're not toys, as the events of the past summer proved.Four Marylanders died this year in jet ski mishaps. The youngest was a 13-year-old Severna Park girl who fell off a jet ski and was run over by a second one. Thirty-two other people were injured in a total of 89 accidents. With speeds averaging 50 mph, high maneuverability, a propulsion system that requires operators to apply power in order to steer and a reasonable price tag, jet skis attract daredevils and novices.

This woman was critically injured because she and her husband sped through an always crowded, frequently choppy section of the Middle River and crossed the wake of another boat. They were not wearing life jackets; their boat had no seat belts.
