In 2015, two jet skiers narrowly avoided a collision along a river in Cancun, Mexico.
Images filmed by Alejandro Bouvier showed another rider swing their jet ski at him and drive straight into his path before the pair quickly sent their vehicles away from each other.
Commenting on the incident, Mr Bouvier later told Grind TV: ‘Actually, I was more concerned about the cost of the jet skis than our injuries, but after thinking about it I believe it was [have resulted] in really bad injuries, if not death.’
