CROSBY, Texas – Family members are grieving the loss of an 8-year-old girl who was killed following a jet ski accident in Newport, just south of Crosby, Sunday night.
The little girl was riding on the back of a jet ski that was being driven by an adult on a private lake around 8 p.m., according to Harris County Sheriff’s deputies. The driver swerved and the child fell off and into the water.
That is when another jet ski, being driven by a family member, ran over the child.
The girl was airlifted to Memorial Hermann Hospital, but could not be saved. She was pronounced dead about an hour after arriving at the hospital.
Deputies said no charges were expected to be filed against anyone. They are calling it a tragic accident.
