A 12-year-old girl was killed Monday morning when she was struck by a powerboat on Newfound Lake in Bridgewater, officials said.

The horrific episode occurred shortly before 8:30 a.m. on Newfound Lake in Hebron, N.H., according to State Police.

According to the marine patrol, the girl has been water skiing behind her father's boat when she fell into the water.

"After falling, the boat operator, her father, returned to assist when his attention was briefly distracted", the statement said.

During that time the boat, travelling at a slow speed, passed over the top of the girl causing serious injuries to her torso, police said.

Police say the girl's family had been watching from a towing boat as the crash happened.

The girl's name has not been released.

The incident remains under investigation.
