NHSP Marine Patrol 12 Year Old Girl Dies in Powerboat Accident on Newfound Lake

A 12-year-old girl was killed Monday while water-skiing in New Hampshire when a boat her father was operating struck her, authorities said.

The accident was reported at 8:30 a.m.

The girl was visiting New Hampshire from Colorado with her parents and sibling, the girl's grandfather told WMUR.

The girl, whose name is being withheld, had been water skiing on the lake in front of the Hillside Inn, while family members watched from a towing boat. As her dad circled back to pick her up, the boat slowly ran over her when her father's "attention was briefly distracted". That's when he passed over her in the powerboat, travelling at a slow speed, causing serious injuries to her torso.

The girl was immediately taken to shore and was administered CPR but she died on the scene.
