REEDLEY, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a 14-year-old girl has died after being thrown from an inner tube on a central California river.
Fresno County Sheriff’s spokesman Tony Botti said the accident happened Saturday afternoon when a boat towing the inner tube made a turn on Kings River.
The teen was ejected from the tube and she struck a tree on the shore.
She was taken to a hospital where she died of her injuries.
Botti said the driver of the boat, who is a relative of the teen, is not facing any criminal charges.
