    Default Jet skier died after being hit by boat propeller

    My thoughts and prayers go out to the families involved!

    (07-21) 14:19 PDT DISCOVERY BAY - -- The Discovery Bay woman whose jet ski collided with a ski boat died after being hit by the boat's propeller, authorities said today as doctors continued to treat her 14-year-old son for injuries he suffered in the incident.
    The body of Jill Hullen, 47, was recovered near the entrance of Discovery Bay at Indian Slough at about 7:30 p.m. Saturday, more than three hours after the collision, said Jimmy Lee, Contra Costa County sheriff's spokesman.
    Hullen's 14-year-old son was found in the water and taken by helicopter to Children's Hospital Oakland, where he was reported to be critical but stable condition today. His name was not released.
    The incident was reported at about 4 p.m. Saturday when a sheriff's marine patrol vessel happened to come across the aftermath of a collision between a ski boat and a WaveRunner-type personal watercraft, Lee said.
    Hullen wasn't immediately found until after a search by the sheriff's dive team and the marine patrol unit, Lee said.
    Deputies are trying to determine the circumstances that led up to the crash, but alcohol is not believed to be a factor, Lee said.

    This really does suck, I heard from the boat owners neighbor that the boat owners 19 year old son (A Good Kid I might add) was driving the boat at the time. It is always sad when something like this happens and it is even worse when the people involved are all good people who are tied to friends and family. Very sad news to say the least, T I hope and pray that your sons friend recovers quickly and that his family can heal from this tragedy.
