A jet skier cut open his leg and had to go to the hospital after an incident in a Sheepshead Bay marina on Aug. 3.

The guy in his 20s severely hurt his right leg while on the watercraft at 3:34 pm, according to a photographer on the scene.

Emergency responders transported him to Lutheran Medical Center with a knee injury, according to fire department authorities.

Officials could not say what lead to the injury, but photos show the teen was bleeding.

Jet skiers have recently come under fire for riding too close to shore near Coney Island Beach and endangering swimmers.
