Victim in fatal boating accident near Tod's Point identified as Emily Fedorko

Greenwich officials have identified the 16-year-old girl killed in a boating accident Wednesday as Emily Fedorko.



Police say four girls were tubing on the Long Island Sound when the accident happened near Tod's Point at around 2 p.m.



Officers say two of the girls were on board the boat and the other two were on a tube attached to the boat.



Police say the tubers got dislodged, and both girls were struck with the propeller when the boat turned to pick them up.



Police say Fedorko died at the scene and the other girl suffered a serious injury to her leg. She is at Stamford Hospital.



Greenwich Schools Superintendent William McKersie says Fedorko was a junior at Greenwich High School. He says the school and the entire community has been affected by the tragedy.



Police say Fedorko was a gymnast and was close with her two siblings. She was also close with the three other girls who were out on the boat with her.



Counselors will be available for the school community.



Police say they will be reconstructing the accident to help determine exactly what happened.
