GREENWICH, Conn. — Four Greenwich lawmakers are discussing safer boating laws after the water-tubing death of a town teenager in August, NBC Connecticut reports.

Emily Fedorko , a 16-year-old Greenwich High School honor student, died while water-tubing on Long Island Sound off Greenwich Point. After falling off her tube, she was struck by the propeller of the boat that was towing it.

According to the Greenwich Police Department, the unnamed 16-year-old friend who drove the boat was properly licensed to operate it.
