KEEGO HARBOR (WWJ) – A fun day on the water turned to tragedy Sunday on Sylvan Lake in Keego Harbor after an 11-year-old is killed. Two other children ranging in age from 5 to 14, were also injured when a boat apparently hit the inner tube the children were in or the rope that was pulling them.

“I saw the wave runner was pulling a tube and it had three children on it and it went past the house and shortly behind it was a Mastercraft going very fast and all of a sudden you hear screaming and you look over and the tubers, which were three children with life jackets, were floating in the water … not moving,” said Rosenthal.READ MORE: Colin Powell Had Mixed Legacy Among Some African Americans
