Child dies in Lake Havasu boating accident

Posted: Updated:

An 8-year-old girl is dead following a boating accident at Lake Havasu on Monday afternoon.

Mohave County Sheriff's deputies said the accident occurred at 3:40 p.m.

A family of six from Cottonwood, AZ - a man, his wife and their four children – were slowly traveling in the Salt Basin area in a rented 2000 Premier Pontoon. The little girl was sitting in the bow of the boat when she fell off and was struck by the propeller.

The child was taken to shore, where she was pronounced dead. Police said alcohol did not appear to be a factor.

The accident remains under investigation.
