MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Authorities say a child was killed in a jet ski crash early Wednesday evening on Lake Minnetonka.

The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office says its Water Patrol was called to East Upper Lake at about 5:45 p.m. Boaters pulled the child from the water and began performing CPR. The victim was then taken to Water Patrol Headquarters in Spring Lake, but were later pronounced dead.
