North Caroline Boat Crash: Pregnant Woman And Young Child Die

A pregnant woman and a young child have been killed after their family's boat was in a collision with a speedboat on a lake in North Carolina.

The speedboat went over the top of the other vessel on the northern part of the High Rock Lake near Linwood, wildlife officials said.

The child was aged between two and four years old and was taken to hospital but later died.

The woman was thrown from the boat into Swearing Creek, a part of the lake, and her body was recovered by a search crew.

A man suffered a head injury in the crash and was taken to the hospital for treatment.
