Lake City, FL – A 5-year-old girl in Florida died after a sturgeon jumped into a boat in which she was riding. Eye witnesses report the sturgeon leaped out of the Suwannee River and then struck the girl.

The tragedy also involved the girl’s mother and 9-year-old brother, who were both taken to an area hospital. While the condition of the mom and brother is not currently known, the young girl — Jaylon Rippy — did not survive.
