A twelve-year-old boy died in a boat accident outside Kråkeneset in the municipality of Bømlo in Westland on Thursday afternoon.
At 16.18 on Thursday, a report was received of a large boat accident in Bømlo municipality just outside Kråkeneset where a small boat collided with a stock (sea mark). A twelve-year-old boy was carried ashore from the sea by another boat.
Major resources were dispatched to the scene and it was soon clear that there was no one else in the lake. The man was taken to shore, where paramedics performed CPR on the boy.
