Kayaker in serious condition

Staff reports

A kayaker who was run over Sunday by a water ski boat is listed in serious condition in a Reno hospital.

The victim, whose name has not been released, was brought to the pier in front of Vikingsholm in Emerald Bay by the boater who ran him over.

A Washoe Medical Center nursing supervisor said the man’s condition has improved from critical to serious condition.

The victim was treated at the scene by an off-duty fireman. He was airlifted after a landing was cleared for a helicopter south of Vikingsholm, authorities said.
