GULFPORT, Miss. —
Authorities say a boating mishap killed one teen and injured another while they were tubing in the Industrial Canal at Gulfport Lake.
Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove tells The Sun Herald (http://bit.ly/1c0M7rf ) 15-year-old Mason Turner, of Saucier, died at the scene Tuesday afternoon.
The name of the injured boy was not immediately available.
Hargrove says they were riding on a tube being pulled by a 21-foot boat.
He says the boat went around a curve and the tube slid out toward the bank and struck a tree.
The driver and three others were on the boat.
