Israeli Jewish Agency worker killed in Florida boating accident

A 24-year-old Israeli woman was killed Sunday in a boating accident in Florida. US authorities said the boat was in the Perdido Bay when the woman fell into the water and was hit by the boat's propeller. She was pulled out of the water and pronounced dead after resuscitation efforts proved unsuccessful. The accident reportedly occurred when one of the passengers was being taught how to steer the boat. The boat apparently jerked suddenly and the young Israeli fell into the water.
