Updated:

A 22-year-old Chino Hills, Calif. woman died Saturday (8/29) after being struck by a boat propeller in Gasoline Alley on Lake Mohave.  She was brought to the Princess Cove launch ramp where medical responders were waiting. The woman was pronounced dead at 6:08 p.m.

The National Park Service was notified of the incident at 5:51 p.m., Nevada Game Wardens and National Park Service rangers responded.

National Parks Officer Andrew Muñoz tells Channel 13, the victim was with family and friends aboard a pontoon boat.  According to witnesses she fell off over the bow of the boat when everyone onboard moved to the front causing the bow to go underwater.

She disappeared under the boat between the pontoons as the boat traveled forward at about 6-8 mph. She was found in the water after the boat passed over her with severe injuries from the propeller.

The incident remains under investigation.  The body has been turned over to the Mohave County Coroner's Office.

The name is being withheld pending next-of-kin notifications.

In June 2008, a 58 year-old California woman was killed after suffering critical injuries from a propeller strike while she was swimming in Gasoline Alley.
