Girl, 12, dies in waterskiing accident on New Hampshire lake

State police say a teenage girl was struck and killed Monday morning by a boat on Newfound Lake in Hebron, New Hampshire. After Zoe Anderson fell, her father was in the process of returning to her location when he became momentarily distracted when his hat was blown off his head, the release says. That's when he passed over her in the powerboat, travelling at a slow speed, causing serious injuries to her torso.

The girl's mother and 14-year-old sister were also in the boat at the time.
