N.H. State Police-Marine Patrol reported Monday night that a father from New York and his two children, ages 3 and 5, escaped serious injury after a boating accident on Pleasant Lake in Northwood.

Authorities say Craig Jankowski, 41, of New Paltz, N.Y., was on a 12-foot Starcraft aluminum boat with his two children, a son and a daughter, ages 5 and 3. Jankowski throttled up the 15-hp motor getting the boat on plane.

Jankowski was using the tiller to turn to port when he shifted his weight causing the boat to list heavily and ejecting him from the port side of the craft, authorities report.
