A boating accident on Lake Eufaula sent a child to a Tulsa area hospital this Fourth of July weekend.

Troopers with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol were notified of the incident Saturday evening near the Eufaula Cove in McIntosh County. Lake Eufaula is just south of Tulsa.

An initial report states that six individuals were on a boat when one of the four children fell off. She had been sitting on the bow dragging her feet in the water, slipped and was hit by the boat's propeller.

Emergency paramedics lifeflighted the child to the Tulsa Children's Hospital with leg injuries. At last check, she was listed in stable condition.
