GREENWICH, Conn. (CBSNewYork) — One 16-year-old girl was killed and another was injured Wednesday afternoon in a boating accident near the Old Greenwich Yacht Club in Connecticut.
As CBS 2’s Tracee Carrasco reported, it was supposed to be a pleasurable summer afternoon of boating out on the water for the four girls. But it ended suddenly and horrifically.
As Joe Biermann reported from Chopper 2, around 2 p.m., the two girls were tubing — riding in a tube tethered to the back the back of a small speedboat — on Long Island Sound, about half a mile offshore from the yacht club. Two other 16-year-old girls were in the boat, Greenwich police said.
