Teen Dies in Tragic Boat Accident on Paxoi Island in Greece

    A teenager was killed in a boating accident on the Ionian island of Paxi on Saturday.

    The mayor of the island, Spyros Vlahopoulos, confirmed to Greek Reporter that the 15-year-old boy was struck by a boat while he was in the water.

    Heavy waves caused the boy to fall in the water where he was struck by the propeller of the boat. He was later transferred to a local hospital where doctors pronounced him dead.

    The teenager, originally from England but a resident of the U.S., had been a passenger on the boat together with some of his family members as they were visiting the island on vacation.
