The girl was water skiing Monday around 8:30 a.m.in Newfound Lake when she fell from her skis, according to New Hampshire State Police Marine Patrol. After falling, the boat operator, her father, returned to assist when his attention was briefly distracted, police said.

The girl suffered serious injuries to her torso, officials said.

Police say the girl's family had been watching from a towing boat as the crash happened.

Police are not releasing the name of the girl or her father at this time.
