A Bronx man is dead after a Jet Ski accident on the Hudson River.
Police say Darel Reyes-Sanchez  and a 23-year-old woman were riding the Jet Ski when it flipped over in the water near the JFK Marina in Yonkers around 6:45 p.m.
Reyes-Sanchez, 31, was found by first responders floating in the water unconscious. Officers immediately began CPR, but he was ultimately pronounced deceased at the hospital.
The woman was able to make her way to an unoccupied vessel moored at a local boat club where she was rescued and taken to the hospital with injuries that are not considered life-threatening.
Police say it appears that both victims were non-swimmers, but were wearing personal floatation devices. However, the life vests were inappropriately sized for their bodies and appeared to be children’s vests.
The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
Police are not yet releasing the name of the female passenger.
