LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. (KABC) -- A 17-year-old girl from Pico Rivera died after she became trapped underneath a capsized boat in Lake Havasu over Labor Day weekend, authorities announced.

Investigators said the teen was onboard a boat near Havasu Landing Casino Sunday afternoon when a monsoon struck the area, causing extremely high winds.

Authorities said there were several people in the water and the teen was trapped underneath the boat.

Lake Havasu Fire treated the girl and rushed her to Havasu Regional Medical Center.

She was eventually flown to Phoenix Children's Hospital, but died Monday due to her injuries.
