A BRITISH dad was forced to have his leg amputated after his daughter ran over him in a boat while on holiday in Italy.

His daughter is said to have mixed up the forward gear with reverse in the horror accident off the coast of Cannigione, Sardinia.

The man – who has not been named – was rushed to Sassari Hospital with a serious wound on his left leg.

Doctors were forced to amputate part of his leg after it was ripped apart in the accident, according to reports.

Air ambulances rushed to the scene near the beach in Cannigione.

La Maddalena Coast Guard are now investigating the horror incident, Galluraoggi reports.

According to reports, the daughter thought she was driving the boat forward – but it was actually in reverse.

She then accidentally ran over her dad who was in the water – leaving him with life-changing injuries. 

Cannigione is a small seaside village in Sardinia with a picturesque beach – and a popular spot for snorkelling and scuba diving.

It comes after a Brit tourist was found dead last year at the bottom of a cliff in Italy after going for a walk.
