Toddler Dies After Losing Leg In Boating Accident

POSTED: 7:06 am EDT June 19, 2006

According to reports, the boy was sitting with his 3-year-old brother on the back of an 18-foot sport boat when the accident occurred. Their father was attempting to drive the boat onto a dry dock after a ride on the Halifax River when the boy fell off the back of the boat and onto its propeller.

An EVAC ambulance spokesman says one of the boy's legs was severed in the accident and he later died at a hospital.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is investigating the accident.
