It was a dangerous day on the water in Gallipolis after two people were injured in a jet ski accident.

A witness says it happened at about 4 p.m. just off of Route 7 on the Ohio River, near where the old silver bridge used to stand.

Emergency dispatchers tell us two people were riding a single jet ski. Witnesses say they were a husband and wife who were both in their late sixties. They lost control of the jet ski and hit a train bridge.

Both were flown to St. Mary's Hospital. Police are investigating the situation to find out exactly what happened.
