Ski Racing South Australia - Official Statement

An incident during our South Australian Titles at Murray Bridge has resulted in the death of one of our competitors Rodney Sheehan and injury to Ken Merrett.

Ken was driving and Rodney observing in the boat Pure Gold when the boat left the course and hit the river bank.  Both were treated immediately on site, but Rodney succumbed to his injuries in the Murray Bridge hospital. Ken was airlifted to Royal Adelaide hospital for further ongoing treatment and remains their Intensive Care Unit.

The incident has deeply affected everyone in our sport and especially the family and friends of this long time highly successful crew. 

Ski Racing South Australia extends its heartfelt condolences to Rodney’s family and its hopes for a full recovery to Ken, while offering any support necessary to all our officials and competitors at this difficult time.
