Auckland’s popular Ocean Swim Series’ briefing process is under scrutiny along with the structure for people to enter and the water entry itself, RNZ reports. The review comes after the water entry left swimmers with gash wounds, with one of the participants being hospitalised for three nights due to the extent of her injuries. Some people did not realise the extent of their injuries until they emerged from the water, one competitor says. However, the St John first aid van was still at the race start point, where it had been held up attending injuries. According to event director Scott Rice, the review would help to reduce the risk of anything like this happening again.
