Girl dies, another injured in boating accident
WASHBURN, N.D. (AP) — A 10-year-old girl has died and another has been injured in a weekend accident on a lake in McLean County.
Sheriff’s officials say the victim along with another 10-year-old girl were on an inner tube that was being pulled by a boat on Strawberry Lake Saturday.
Their inner tube was struck by an uncontrolled Jet Ski whose operator had been thrown from the watercraft a short time earlier.
Both girls were transferred from a Minot hospital to Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare Hospital in St Paul, Minnesota where one of the girls died. The other remains hospitalized. Her condition was not available.
