May 27, 2009

Maryland Natural Resources police say a teen was seriously injured when he steered a boat into a dock and was knocked into the water along Herring Creek in West Ocean City.

The 13-year-old boy was flown to Shock Trauma in Baltimore on Sunday evening.

Police spokesman Sgt. A.A. Windemuth says Brian Jay Dalamater was charged with knowingly allowing a person under age 16 to operate a personal watercraft and failure to possess valid registration for the watercraft.

Windemuth says Maryland law prohibits anyone under 16 from operating a personal watercraft.
