Lake Havasu, AZ (KTNV) -- The 8-year-old girl that was killed April 22 during a boating accident on Lake Havasu has been identified as Sarah Roderick of Cottonwood, Ariz.

Authorities say that the young girl was on a rented pontoon boat with her three siblings and parents.

She was sitting on the bow of the boat when she fell and was struck by a propeller.

The girl was pronounced dead at the lake.

Roderick was wearing a life vest at the time of the incident and it does not appear that alcohol was a factor.

The accident is still under investigation.
