— Two juveniles were injured Sunday in separate boating accidents on Lake Murray, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported.

Both accidents involved tubes that were being towed by boats. According to the highway patrol, Braden Woodruff, 9, of Davis, was tubing Sunday afternoon when he was struck by an oncoming pontoon.

Braden was taken to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City, where he was listed Monday in good to fair condition, a hospital official said.

The second incident happened about 6 p.m. Sunday. The highway patrol reported Nikki Faulkner, 17, of Ardmore, was hurt when her tube went airborne and she struck the water.

Faulkner was taken to The Medical Center of Plano, Texas. A hospital official said Monday she already had been released.
