Brother & Sister Killed in Tubing Accident on Michigan Lake

11-year-old, Alex Mansour, 6-year-old Gabrielle Mansour and 10-year-old Adriana Mansour were in a tube on Michigan Lake being pulled behind their father John Mansour, who was riding a jet ski on Sylvan Lake on Sunday, July 14th. At around 12:30pm, a boater swerved avoiding the jet ski but failed to see the tube being dragged behind it. The boat struck the three children head on. The father and the boat operator frantically tried to pull the children out of the water to safety. Paramedics arrived and took the children to McLaren Oakland Hospital in Pontiac. Alex died of injuries to his chest shortly after the accident. An autopsy has  ruled the death as accidental and caused by multiple blunt force injuries. His two sisters were taken to Royal Oak Beaumont Hospital where Gabrielle died on Monday and Adriana remains in critical condition. The Sheriff’s Office said there was no spotter on the personal watercraft, which is required by law. This is a terrible tragedy.
