A 33-metre-long rope was found in the engine of a jetfoil involved in an accident in Macau on Friday which left 46 passengers and crew injured.

Most of the injured suffered minor cuts and bruises when the jetfoil stopped suddenly off Taipa Island en route to Hong Kong. Only one of the injured, a man from Hong Kong, is in hospital in Macau.
