WINTER HAVEN -

A 10-year-old boy injured in a jet ski accident in Polk County over the weekend has died, the sheriff's office reported Tuesday.

Hunter Gonzalez died Sunday at Tampa General Hospital, according to the Polk County Sheriff's Office.

The accident happened Saturday when several family and friends gathered at Lake Lulu in Winter Haven. Investigators say 28-year-old Juan Nunez was driving a jet ski, that was pulling an inner tube carrying three people, including a nine-year-old and ten-year-old boy.

They say Nunez made a sharp turn that sent the inner tube and those on it crashing into a dock.

David Landazuri, 31, remains in critical condition at Lakeland Regional Medical Center. Javier Nunez, 9, is listed in stable condition at Tampa General Hospital.

Impairment was not suspected in the accident, investigators said.
