A Carlisle woman dies in a boat crash on Raystown Lake in Huntingdon County. It happened at about 10 o’clock Thursday night on the lake between marker 17 at Nancy’s Boat to Shore and 18, Tatman Run Boat Launch, in Lincoln Township.

Divers recovered the body of the 36 year old victim from the boat’s cabin. Police are withholding the name of the victim pending notification of next of kin.  As many as five other people were aboard the craft were rescued.

The cause of death has been ruled accidental. The investigation into the crash continues.


  • Why

    Why wouldn't the other five passengers try to save the woman if they knew she was in cabin of boat??? Seems like it was a fend for yourselves situation??

      Probably was a fend-for-yourself panic. In bouncy water, I do not think you can see everyone with just your own head above water. Lifejackets?
