Authorities say a 16-year-old Virginia girl was killed in a tubing accident on a northern Michigan lake.

The Iosco County sheriff's department says the accident happened Friday on Jose Lake. It's in Plainfield Township.

The sheriff's department said Monday that it isn't releasing the girl's identity.

The department says a 55-year-old woman was towing the girl behind a power boat when the tube struck an anchored swimming platform.
