A 26-year-old Baldwin woman was killed Sunday when the inner tube she was riding behind a powerboat crashed into a bulkhead in Parsonage Cove in Oceanside, police said.
Nassau County said the incident occurred around 5:30 p.m. and identified the victim as Sabina Singh.
Police said Singh was in the tube being towed behind a boat operated by a 55-year-old man when the tube collided with a bulkhead at Middle Bay Country Club.
Singh was then transferred back into the boat and transported to Ann Street in Baldwin, where a Nassau County Ambulance crew was able to meet the boat and take her to a hospital.
Police said Singh was pronounced dead at the hospital as a result of "severe head and chest trauma." The investigation into the accident is continuing.
