NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) _ A man and woman have been charged in connection with a boating accident that severely injured a girl at Lake Maloney in western Nebraska.

Court records say Doug Haney is charged with boating under the influence and two counts of felony child abuse. Mary Haney is charged with tampering with evidence and being an accessory. A North Platte phone listed for them rang busy during several calls Wednesday. Court records don't list an attorney for them.

The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office says a boat was pulling the 9-year-old girl and another girl on some sort of flotation device at high speed when the boat turned sharply and the girls were tossed onto rocks. The older girl was taken to an Omaha hospital. The other girl suffered minor injuries.
