Sadly, a young boy from Belleville, Ontario was critically  injured when he was swimming at his summer camp and a boat hit him. The terrible boating accident occurred close to Kingston Ontario.  He now remains in serious condition at a Kingston Hospital and is being treated for severe personal injuries. Ontario Provincial Police reported that the young boy was at a beach with his day camp on Wednesday, close to North Beach Provincial Park, about 20 km south of Trenton, Ontario. The young boy had been swimming in North Bay, a lake close to Lake Ontario and had just finished a tubing before he was hit by the boat. Another boat being driven by a 19  year old counsellor was pulling a different camper when he hit the swimmer. The boat’s  propeller hit the boy and he suffered serious personal injuries, which include lacerations to his chest. He was transferred to the Kingston General Hospital in serious condition.

Boating Accidents and Insurance Claims

A boat is considered to be a motor vehicle and is just as dangerous as a car when it comes to accidents.

What a terrible boating accident and awful event for this young boy and his family.  My thoughts are with them at this very stressful time. I wish the young boy a full and hopefully speedy recovery.
