New Hampshire is home to many beautiful lakes that provide residents and tourists with scenic and recreational enjoyment all year round. Active summertime recreational activities are plentiful, including swimming and boating. As fun as motorboating can be, like driving a car, operating a boat requires skill and care to ensure safety.
Tragic boating accidents do happen, and this summer in New Hampshire has seen it firsthand. As reported in the Laconia Daily Sun, a young child was water skiing when she was tragically killed. The operator of the boat pulling her across the water reportedly became distracted, leading him to accidentally allow the boat to travel over the child, causing fatal injuries.
