PAGE, Ariz. (AP) - Rangers say a 5-year-old boy is dead after a boating accident at Lake Powell.
National Park Service spokeswoman Denise Shultz says the incident happened about 6:30 p.m. Friday near the Tapestry Wall rock formation.
Shultz says the child was riding in the bow of the boat when the watercraft hit a wave and the boy fell out.
Officials say he was struck by a propeller and was killed instantly.
Shultz says the people aboard the boat were all wearing life jackets and alcohol was not involved in the accident.
The name of the boy who was killed has not yet been made public.
