Boat Capsizes, Trapping Infant
An 18-month infant is in extremely critical condition after a boat capsized in Lake Havasu City. Winds were blowing around 15 to 20 miles an hour, creating 2 to 4-foot waves that were breaking over the bow of the boat. 43-year-old Jose Ortega of El Centro, California was operating the boat and instructed the passengers to move to the rear of the vessel until the boat reached the shore. Just short of the shore, the boat capsized, trapping the baby underneath. A police diver tried to get under the vessel, but it was stuck. Others helped free the boat and secure the infant. Lake Havasu City firefighters performed CPR on the baby before it was flown to a hospital for further medical treatment. There were 12 people on board, two of which were not wearing a personal flotation device. Alcohol was not considered to be a factor in the accident, which is still under investigation.
