WILLIAMSON CO., Ill. - A 9-year-old female from Creal Springs lost her life last night in what's being called a tragic accident at Lake of Egypt in Williamson County.

Williamson County Coroner Junior Burke said that the child was swimming with friends at LOE last night when a woman operating a jet ski reportedly started it up, and the intake on the jet ski caught the little girl's hair in it.

The motor of the jet ski, said Burke, was only in operation and the jet ski was not actually moving when the tragic accident occurred.

Lake of Egypt Fire and Rescue were called to the scene, and the 9-year-old was transported to Heartland Regional Medical in Marion, where she was pronounced deceased at 6:58 p.m. last night, Wednesday, May 16.

The Illinois Department of Conservation and the Williamson County Coroner's Office are both investigating the accident.
