DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A young boy is in the hospital after being struck by a boat’s propeller Thursday night while out on the lake with his dad. It happened at about 8:30 p.m. on Lake Ray Hubbard, near the Rush Creek Yacht Club.

According to officials with the Rockwall Fire Department, Aiden McKitrick, 3, was playing by the gate of a pontoon boat when he fell overboard and was hit by the vessel’s propeller. The boy’s father was able to pull him from the water and call 911. From there, the child was rushed to Children’s Medical Center in Dallas.
