It is advised to let someone know when you go out on a jet ski in case something unfortunate occurs
A young jet-skier was lucky to survive after spending a night lost at sea, it has been revealed.
The incident happened when the 29-year-old Shepparton man's jet-ski broke down at Zeally Bay, Torquay just after 9.30pm (AEDT).
He was found more than eight hours later and three nautical miles south west of Port Phillip Heads off Point Lonsdale just before 6.15am (AEDT) the next day.
It had taken a team of police, volunteer rescuers and the coast guard all night to search for the man after friends lost sight of him.

In a statement the water police senior constable Rob Heip said that the man was extremely lucky to survive as he was ill-equipped for the conditions. He suffered mild hypothermia from the ordeal and required treatment at Geelong Hospital.
