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.
