Investigation continues into weekend boating death

Investigators spent Monday still trying to determine the cause of a boating accident on Petite Lake near Lake Villa over the weekend that took the life of a 10-year-old Libertyville boy, authorities said.

Tony Borcia, 10, of Libertyville was killed about 4:40 p.m. Saturday after he fell off an inner tube he was riding on and was run over by another boat, said Sgt. Brett Scroggins of the Illinois Conservation Police.

Borcia was pronounced dead at the scene, Scroggins said. Two other people were treated after the accident for non-life-threatening issues not directly related to the collision.
