Southern 80 Fatality

Two deaths in as many years

Southern 80 Fatality

Tragedy on the Murray River over the weekend as another life has been lost at the Southern 80.

50-year-old David Morabito was killed. He was pulled unconscious from the water after the water skiing boat he was driving crashed yesterday afternoon.

A woman in her 20s who was also on the boat has been airlifted to Bendigo Hospital with neck injuries.

Event organisers were horrified as the fatal smash was just one of 3 serious collisions over the weekend, with the other two others being hospitalised in Echuca - including a man in his 20s who is suffering severe head and spinal injuries.
