Police say boy on Long Island killed in boating accident”

A 10-year-old boy has died after falling out of a boat and being struck by the propeller in the waters off Long Island, officials say.

As CBS2's Joe Biermann reported from Chopper 2, the accident happened around 3 p.m. Tuesday near the Centerport Yacht Club in Centerport.

The boys, all of whom were wearing life jackets, were participating in a sailing lesson when their boat was intentionally capsized as part of the instruction.

Meyers said the boy was successfully pulled into the instructor's Zodiac boat, but then fell out and was struck by the boat's propeller.

"There were three students taking sailing lessons", Meyers told The Post. By the time he arrived, the child was out of the water and on the boat launch. The instructor pulled the boy from the water again and began performing CPR.

He was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced deceased. They provide Junior sailing classes for ages 5 and up - and have a fleet of more than 120 sailing yachts, over 50 power yachts and almost 70 power boats.
