Dutch supermodel Yfke Sturm fighting for her life following dramatic jet surf accident

A Victoria’s Secret model is fighting for her life after being involved in a horrific jet surf accident.

Yfke Sturm, 33, was left in coma with a fractured skull and severe spinal injuries after being hit by another rider while on holiday in Italy – near the island of Ischia.

The model – who is based in London – welcomed her first son Alexander just last month.

Yfke was riding the motorised surfboard when she fell in and was then hit as she attempted to swim to shore.

She was airlifted to hospital in Naples, where she continues to be treated by specialists.

The blonde model is best known for working for Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, Chanel and many more of the major fashion labels.

She is believed to be at serious risk of permanent paralysis. We’ve contacted her rep for further comment on her condition.

Last month the 5ft 11 star shared a picture of her newborn son writing: “Words can not descibe how excited we are for the arrival of our son Alexander!!”
