GREENWICH, Conn. (AP) — Police have identified the 16-year-old Greenwich High School student killed in a boating accident that also seriously injured another 16-year-old girl.

Greenwich police say Emily Fedorko died Wednesday after she was struck by the propeller of a boat towing her and the other girl who were tubing. Two other girls, also 16, were operating the boat.

The injured girl, who was not identified, had a soft-tissue leg wound that required extensive stitching. Her injuries were not life-threatening.

Authorities were still investigating the accident.
