The Reno County Sheriff has released more information about a deadly boating accident on the east side of Cheney Lake Friday afternoon.
The 13-year-old was visiting relatives in Wichita.
The sheriff's office says passengers on the boat tried to perform CPR on Smit while heading back to shore.
"I couldn't believe it," said Russ Whitley as he stood on the boat marina Friday afternoon. "We were out on the lake, and didn't hear nothing, didn't see nothing."
The Sheriff's Office says the driver of the boat was not drinking.
"This is an accident," explained Reno County Undersheriff Sheldon Stewart. "That's why they call them accidents, and we do have accidents in this world, and this is tragic."
