A man injured while riding a personal watercraft in a southern New Jersey waterway has been rescued by a Coast Guard crew. The unidentified man was traveling in the Hereford Inlet, near Cape May, around 4 p.m. Saturday when a large wave knocked him overboard and injured his ankle.

A passerby notified the Coast Guard station in Cape May, which quickly sent a rescue boat to the scene. The man was pulled from the water and taken to a marina in Wildwood, where he was treated by awaiting emergency medical personnel.

Further details on his injuries were not disclosed.
