2 dead, 1 hurt in boating accident on Lake Havasu

Posted: Updated:

Two people are dead and another injured in two separate incidents on Lake Havasu near the
Arizona-California border.

Lake Havasu officials say a person drown late Saturday afternoon in Copper Canyon on the California side of the lake.

No other details were available including the person's name.

Also, the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Office says a woman was killed and a man injured when a boat struck them near the mini sandbar on the north end of the lake.

Sheriff's spokesman Lt. Ross Tarangle tells the Lake Havasu City Today's News-Herald that the boat operator was maneuvering near shallow water when he struck a woman.

Tarangle says the propeller hit the woman in the upper body and she died of the injuries. He says a man jumped in to help her and also was struck by the propeller.

He was reported in stable condition at a Las Vegas hospital.
