Gulfport Woman Killed In Boating Accident

It's been a deadly holiday weekend on the water in South Mississippi.

A Gulfport woman was killed Sunday afternoon off of Horn Island when she became entangled in a boat propeller. Jackson County Coroner Vicki Broadus says Kellie Ramsey, 35, died of massive injuries from the propeller.

Rangers from Gulf Island National Seashore responded to a call for help around 4pm Sunday.

Robert Harris with Gulf Islands told WLOX News Ramsey had been on an 18 foot pleasure boat with friends before the accident. Harris says it's unclear how Ramsey ended up caught up in the propeller.

The investigation continues.
