3 college students hurt in Connecticut canoeing accident

HEBRON, Conn. (AP) — Authorities say three college students have been hurt in a boating accident on a Connecticut lake.

A spokeswoman for the state Department of Energy & Environmental Protection says the Wesleyan University students were hurt while canoeing on Amston Lake in Hebron on Saturday afternoon.

A 19-year-old woman was flown to Hartford Hospital, where she remains in intensive care. Investigators said the woman was unresponsive.
