Teen injured in boating accident

SWEET HOME, OR (KPTV) -

An Oregon teen is in fair condition at a Portland hospital after a boating accident near Sweet Home.

It happened Sunday afternoon on Foster Lake, authorities said. The boy was with his mom on the family's boat when he fell off the ski tube tied to the back of the boat.

His mom turned the boat to try and pick the boy up out of the water, they said, and that's when the boat's propeller hit him, cutting his back.

Paramedics flew the boy to Oregon Health & Science University, where he's being treated for his injuries. Authorities are investigating the accident.
