An 11-year-old boy was airlifted to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center after a snowmobile accident on Lake Winnipesauke in Gilford, New Hampshire.
Two off-duty Gilford police officers, who were fishing at the time, and Gilford firefighters responded to the accident, according to a statement from New Hampshire Fish and Game.
The crash happened between Loches Island and Governors Island around 4pm, and the boy was with three others on the lake when he attempted to cross a ‘dangerous pressure ridge’. The boy was unable to cross and in doing so, his snowmobile overturned, throwing him out of the vehicle.
Gilford Fire and Rescue concluded that the boy had very serious and life-threatening injuries. He was then airlifted to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center for treatment.
