Family mourns UT boy dead in Lake Powell accident

PAGE, Ariz. -- Family members say their hearts are broken after a 5-year-old northern Utah boy died in a boating accident in Lake Powell.

The child was been identified as Keaton Howard of American Fork.

National Park Service spokeswoman Denise Shultz says Howard was riding in the bow of the boat Friday evening when the watercraft hit a wave and he fell out near the Tapestry Wall rock formation.

She says he was struck by a propeller and was killed instantly.

Relatives issued a statement Tuesday saying they loved Howard and his ``bright personality'' and were finding comfort in their faith while they grieved.

Shultz says the people aboard the boat were all wearing life jackets and alcohol was not involved in the accident.
