Update: Injured jet-skier transferred to specialist unit

A Jersey advocate who suffered horrific leg injuries following a “catastrophic” jet-ski accident has thanked islanders for their “thoughts and prayers” after being transferred from Southampton Hospital to a specialist unit in Salisbury.

Giles Corbin (45) a partner at law firm Mourant Ozannes, was airlifted for treatment at Southampton Hospital trauma unit last weekend after a speedboat crashed into his side while he was a passenger on a jet ski in St Brelade’s Bay.

Mr Corbin underwent three operations whilst in Southampton to remove material embedded in his leg and to curb infection, as well as work to repair his shattered knee.

He has since been transferred to Salisbury Hospital Foundation Trust’s Burns and Plastics Unit, where he has remained since Friday morning.

In a social media post, he assured friends and loved ones: “I’m in good hands.”

“Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers,” he added.
