Georgia woman killed when jet-ski hits Lake Lanier shoreline

July 22, 2019

ATLANTA (AP) — A 20-year-old Georgia woman was killed in a jet-ski wreck on Lake Lanier.

News outlets report Kaylynn Ticas of Lawrenceville died Saturday after being transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center.

Georgia Department of Natural Resources spokesman Mark McKinnon says Ticas was riding the watercraft at high speeds when she struck the shoreline. Bystanders pulled her from the water’s edge.

The agency says an investigation is ongoing.

WSB-TV says Ticas is the 12th person to die in an accident at Lake Lanier this year.

A 30-year-old man tried to rescue his 9-year-old son who slipped under the water on July 11. They both died last week.
