Boat driver charged in girl's drowning

The Associated Press

        SPRINGFIELD, Ohio — A man has been charged in the death of an 11-year-old Dayton girl who fell from a boat and drowned at Sylvan Lake.

        Frank Lieghley Jr., who was operating the boat, was arrested Friday on misdemeanor charges of vehicular homicide, unsafe operation of a watercraft, and sitting or standing on a moving vehicle.

        Andrina Hunley and other children were at the lake Aug. 20 as a reward for perfect Sunday school attendance at Bible Baptist Church in Dayton.

        Andrina was standing on the rear platform of a ski boat with two other children when they slipped and fell into the water.

        The other two were not seriously hurt.

        Mr. Lieghley will be arraigned Tuesday. He faces up to eight months in jail and $1,600 in fines.
