A happy day on the lake came to an unfortunate end for four teen girls, after one of the girls was struck by a speedboat propeller and killed.
Emily Fedorko, 16 years old, was riding on an inflatable tube that was pulled on the water by a speedboat driven by the other girls.
She fell off the tube and was dragged into the boat’s propeller when it maneuvered to pick her up. The girl’s breasts became caught in the propeller, and the poor teen suffered severe injuries to her torso that caused her death.
The day began sunny, with 16-year-old Emily being pulled on an inflatable tube by the speedboat piloted by her lifelong friends.
The young teen accidentally slipped off the tube and fell into the water. The boat slowed down, but its engine was still running, while the girl’s tube continued forward, pulling the teenager toward the spinning propeller.
The beautiful young girl frantically tried to swim away from the boat’s churning engine, thrashing in the water.
Before she could escape, the poor 16-year-old’s breasts were caught in the propeller. Witnesses heard a “bloodcurdling scream” as the teenager was sucked into the whirling blades.
The teen’s young body became entangled with the propeller. The rapidly spinning blades tore the young girl to shreds.
Witnesses described a gruesome scene, as the lake’s water churned red with the blood of the doomed 16-year-old. Her friends could only watch helplessly, as the propeller sliced into the teenager’s breasts and caused severe lacerations to her torso.
Eventually, the remaining girls pulled Emily’s mangled body out of the bloody water, and sped back to the dock.
When police arrived at the scene, the teenager was dead on arrival. Authorities have ruled out drugs or alcohol as contributing factors.
