NBC Connecticut reports a 16-year-old Connecticut high school student was killed and another suffered a serious leg injury after the teens fell while tubing on Long Island Sound and were struck by the boat towing them, according to police.


Police said the accident happened while four girls, all 16-year-olds from Greenwich, were boating off Greenwich Point Park on Wednesday afternoon. According to police, the boat belonged to one of their fathers.


Two of the teens fell off an inner tube around 2 p.m. and became entangled in the boat's propeller while one of the other girls brought it around to pick them up, police said.
