4-year-old boy killed in boating accident at Lake Arrowhead


A 4-year-old boy was struck and killed by a pleasure boat at Lake Arrowhead on Sunday after falling over the side, authorities said.

Gideon Zilberstein, of Woodland Hills, was riding on the bow of the boat while it was pulling a skier when the accident occurred at about 4:20 p.m., said Olivia Bozek, a spokeswoman for the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

“When the skier fell, the boat operator turned to retrieve the skier,” Bozek said. “The child fell over the side and was struck by the boat.”


The child suffered traumatic injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency medical providers at 4:33 p.m., Bozek said.

The incident is under investigation by the sheriff’s department, she said.
