Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries enforcement agents are investigating a fatal boating incident in Assumption Parish that occurred on Sept. 11.
The boating incident occurred around 2 p.m. in Bayou Cheramie near Amelia and claimed the life of Jaidyn Montet, 7, of Bayou L’Ourse.
Agents learned that a triton bass boat with one person on board collided with a 20 foot aluminum vessel with four people on board including Montet while in a curve on the Bayou.
An ambulance transported Montet’s body to Teche Regional Medical Center in Morgan City where she was pronounced dead with severe head trauma. The operator of the aluminum vessel was also treated for minor injuries.
LDWF will be the lead investigative agency for this boating incident. Agents do not suspect alcohol played a role in this collision.
