Funeral Set For Greenwich Teen Killed In Tubing Accident

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A 16-year-old Greenwich High School student killed in a boating accident last week is being laid to rest.

Family and friends of Emily Fedorko will gather Monday at St. Clement Church in Stamford for her funeral. Burial will follow in Putnam Cemetery in Greenwich.

Fedorko was killed and a 15-year-old girl was injured while tubing on Long Island Sound last Wednesday. Police say Fedorko was struck by the propeller of a boat that had been towing her and the other girl.

Police said it appeared the boat struck the girls after they fell off the tube and the boat driver turned around to get them. Authorities say the teenage girl who was driving the boat was licensed.

Grief counselors have been made available to Greenwich students.
