State police say a teenage girl was struck and killed Monday morning by a boat on Newfound Lake in Hebron, New Hampshire.

Marine Patrol got the call close to 8:30 Monday morning about a serious boating accident.

According to New Hampshire State Police Marine Patrol, the girl had been water skiing on the lake in front of the Hillside Inn while family members watched from the towing boat. As her dad circled back to pick her up, the boat slowly ran over her when her father's "attention was briefly distracted". CPR was initiated, but efforts to revive her were unsuccessful.

The girl's grandfather described her as someone who was full of life, and he said she was visiting from Colorado, along with an older sister and her parents.

The girl's name has not been released.
