SEATTLE — Grant County authorities say a 27-year-old woman died after her jet ski was struck by another jet ski.

Officials with the Grant County Sheriff’s Office say Adra-Ann Rice of Des Moines, Washington, was riding with her 8-year-old daughter Saturday afternoon near Blue Heron Park when their jet ski was hit by another jet ski driven by a 17-year-old male relative who also lives in Des Moines.

The child and teenager were not seriously injured.

Official say bystanders at the park went into the water and administered first aid to the three until emergency responders arrived.

The three were taken to a Moses Lake hospital, where Rice later died.

The investigation of the crash continues.
