With the River Murray proving to be a popular holiday hang out for many over the Christmas/new year break police are reminding boat operators to be safe on the water for the remainder of the summer holidays.
Recently in Morgan an 8-year-old girl was swimming in the River Murray at Morgan in front of the main ski area, when she was struck by a ski-boat.
As a result, the girl sustained a nasty leg and ankle laceration which required hospital treatment.
The driver of the boat was breath-tested and returned a negative result, but the incident is being investigated by Marine Safety.
