(5/24/2020) -- Memorial Day weekend got off to a heartbreaking start on Lake Fenton.

A 17-year-old girl is dead after an accident involving two personal watercraft.

Genesee County Sheriff Chris Swanson said Lexi Simon was killed after accidentally being hit by her boyfriend, who was driving a second personal watercraft.

Witnesses say she had slowed down because someone had fallen off a tube and his personal watercraft struck hers from behind around 3 p.m. Sunday afternoon on the north end of the lake.

Police say the 17-year-old male dove into the water to save her, but her injuries were severe.
