One killed, one injured in boating accident
One person was killed and another was injured in boat accident on Lake Whitmore on Sunday.
According to authorities, the 34-year-old man and his 2-year-old daughter were somehow ejected from the boat and into the 41 degree water. The man was not wearing a life jacket and his body was found underneath the surface.
Two residents in the area saw the empty boat and traveled in their paddle boat in order to see if anyone was in the water. The 2-year-old was found unconscious in the water with a life jacket on.
The two residents along with others transported the child back and she is currently in ICU at the hospital. There were not witnesses to the accident so it is currently under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the friends and family of the victim at this time.
