12-year-old girl dies after being run over by a boat driven by her father on NH lake

HEBRON — A 12-year-old girl has died after being hit by a boat in the town of Hebron.

The girl was water skiing Monday around 8:30 a.m. in Newfound Lake when she fell from her skis, according to New Hampshire State Police Marine Patrol.

The boat's operator, her father, returned to get his daughter, and was briefly distracted. That's when he passed over her in the powerboat, travelling at a slow speed, causing serious injuries to her torso. She was pulled into the boat and brought to shore where efforts to resuscitate her were unsuccessful.

State Police Marine Patrol ask anyone who may have more information or who may have witnessed the accident to contact Sergeant Joshua Dirth at 603-293-2037 or email at
