Girl Dies After Boat Falls on Her

Alaska State Troopers say a 3-year-old girl from lower Kalskag has died after a boat fell on top of her.

The accident happened on Saturday on dry land, in the community of Lower Kalskag about 90 miles northeast of Bethel.

Troopers say the girl, Gwendolyn Nayamin, had been playing on the 16-foot boat, which had been leaning against a home.

The boat toppled while she was playing on it. No foul play is suspected, and troopers have called it an accidental death. The girl’s body will be sent to Anchorage for an autopsy.
