MOULTONBOROUGH -- An Andover, Mass., man and an 8-year-old girl were taken to a Laconia hospital after the jet ski they were riding on exploded Sunday on Lake Winnipesaukee.

New Hampshire Marine Patrol officials said Steven Mitton, 56, and the girl were thrown from the vessel. Mitton’s pelvis was broken and the girl suffered a head laceration.

Deputy Fire Chief Richard Buckler said authorities were still assessing the details of the 1:45 p.m. incident.

"It's a gas engine, it can explode," he said.

The two were taken to Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia. The incident, which is under investigation, happened near Orton Shores off Shaker Jerry Road, Buckler said.
