A 21-year-old Italian man has tragically died after the jet ski he was riding overturned at Super Paradise beach on Mykonos island.

The tourist was on holidays with his girlfriend when the couple decided to hire a jet ski for the day to ride around the Cycladic island.

According to reports, the young man was riding the watercraft with his partner holding on behind him when the jet ski overturned.

The pair both fell off and attempted to swim to safety but unfortunately the 21-year-old drowned as he tried to make it back to shore. The young man's girlfriend was rescued with doctors announcing she is in good physical health but is still being monitored as she is suffering from traumatic stress.

The body of the young man was taken to Mykonos Hospital, where a necropsy-necrotomy will be performed.
