Onondaga County Sheriff’s investigators are looking into a boating accident on Skaneateles Lake Wednesday night.
An eight-year-old girl and her father were hit by a boat just before 6 pm near the State boat launch on West Lake Road.
According to deputies, a 17-foot boat was towing an inner tube carrying the two, and the driver turned, hitting them.
A boater nearby helped them get the girl out of the water.
She suffered serious injuries to her upper body and is in a Syracuse hospital.
The investigation continues.
